I was recently honored to do this commission for a friends birthday- his long awaited wedding to his love.
They adored it. Said all their friends would be jealous.
I thought it was done at this long til a friend said darken the background so John on the right shows up better. Remember it’s all about the contrast!! Shadows have a lot of purples added for contrast as well as burnt sienna.
Colors used! Skin is yellow ochre and Quin coral. The Daniel Smith Quin coral akes a lovely glowy skin. The grey hair is stipples cerulean blue. Works great for stubbly hair.
That’s all I got for today. Have a lovely weekend. Life modeling tomorrow if all goes well!!
Thanks for reading.
