Painting of a couple

This is the first commission I worked on in 2018. It is a portrait of a couple who were married in January. The bride-to-be commissioned the painting as a wedding present for her future husband. The painting is 30 x 40 cm in size, painted with acrylics on stretched canvas.

Couple Painting

I finished this painting today. It is a lovely seaside view from Australia. This painting was commissioned by the lady in the picture as a wedding present for her husband to be. The painting is 20 x 30 cm in size and it is painted with acrylics on stretched canvas. The photo was just beautiful and the colours are very different to an Irish seascape. I wanted to capture the lovely deep reds and turquoise. Besides the usual burnt umber, yellow ochre and ultramarine, I used venetian red and cerulean blue for contrast.
