Judy & John

Judy & John

16" x 20"
Oil on hardwood Panel

While looking at some photographs of children, I came across an interesting photo of Judy.

After some consideration I decided to try creating a painting with this couple. It was done just from photo references and has that limitation.

The clothes have also been altered somewhat to unify the painting.

At some angles the monitor reproduces this fairly well and at others it's very washed out.

It was a fun painting and as John Singer Sargent noted - I hope that I don't loose friends over it. Capturing the light is a challenge. 

They are a wonderful couple - full of wisdom and charity. As a side note, Judy has naturally very dark and striking hair.
