Custom Couple Watercolor Painting

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.

Good Elephant

My most recent commission is a safari animal for a nursery. First, I painted a lion, but I think he came out too mean. My second attempt, I believe, is a success. Who wouldn’t want this friendly elephant protecting baby’s room?

What safari animal would you have painted?
