Rachel and Tristan Gettin' Hitched
So my cousin Rachel got hitched. I decided I needed to paint them a picture. Because that's what I do... and I couldn't make it across the country for the wedding (many sad faces were to be had).
There was only one problem. I haven't painted (really painted) in lord only knows how long. O.O
BUT! I knew I was inspired by their theme of desert succulents and some other paintings I did in college. To the drawing board!
I know it looks like a bunch of scribbles, but I promise there is a plan! (see thumbnails to the right!)
See! Breaking the whites and getting stuff down. (also phone photos :P)
I even have outlines and forms happening. Now comes a bunch of going back and forth with paint layers and colored pencils...
Almost done sitting with it's companion piece I made for my mother one year.
The final! And it got done surprisingly on time! I sent it with my dad in his carry on to deliver it. So I haven't lost the painting bug completely. :D
