The perfect anniversary Gift. I slightly recomposed the scene, adding detail to the column and flowers and some golden glow to the sunlight coming through the trees. These paintings are a great way to refresh dated and faded photo memories creating something new and beautiful.
Here's the photo I sent the client for final approval. I was just adding some final color glazes to the flowers before varnishing.
Another comparison of the original photo I used as reference to guide the finished acrylic painting
Here's a close up view of the groom
An even closer view. In actual viewing you don't really notice the canvas texture on these paintings so much. A person rarely gets this close to the art when viewing, but it's neat to see some of the fine brushwork that goes into one of our acrylic portraits.
The Pearls. I usually add more color in pearls but I kept these a more matrimonial white.
