This painting took a number of weeks to complete. Working out the composition took some time with input from my wife and daughter - both are big critiques of my work. (why and how come did you decided to paint that are some of the top questions). I decided to take a progression of photos to show how I progresses. I sketched it on the board and them decided to start with the faces first. This has to be one of the larges portraits that I have painted. The finished painting was given to my sister-in-law for her birthday.
