This is my second watercolor couples portrait. I really enjoy painting two people that are in love. It is my hope that more of these types of commissions roll in. The first was a wedding present, this will be a Christmas gift. Chemistry between lovers is not easy to capture, but when the paint finally catches it, the whole piece shines.
Love in Yellow and Blue. Watercolor and ink on paper. 5″ x 7″.
Here a few process shots. I know some people enjoy seeing the work in progress.
