Bethan.....


When I had a message from a lovely lady, Shirley, who I met through RedBubble, offering me the use of her photos, should I want to use them as a ref for painting, I jumped at the chance.....Amongst her beautiful work she does wedding photography and I just loved one of them in particular....

This is a quick sketch at Bethan's face to get the likeness, and work with colours. Not quite there yet, but I was quite pleased with it....I am now working on the larger piece....

Colours are slightly off due to photographing in poor light...

My special thanks to Shirley.. sfoxphotography

This will be a lovely portrait. You and Shirley could have a wonderful partnership - not only photos, but paintings to remember the wedding day!
