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.

The Drawing of the Three

On October first, my husband and I threw a huge party celebrating our recent marriage. My sister Maria, my sister Brianna, and I got our hair done together. As the three of us are artists, we each drew a sketch while waiting for our turn in the seat. This is one of the very few blog posts that will include drawings I did not make. I am the oldest of the three. Maria is five years younger than I am. Brianna is ten years younger than Maria.
