A surprise gift for my brother and sister in law, this is my nephews Tyler and Adam, and my twin nieces Hailey and Lyndsay. I used a couple of different photos of them from their Disney vacation a few years ago (had to do some Facebook stalking for pics!).
Acrylic on canvas, 24×30, painted in 2013.
Reference photos below:
And an extra one of Adam because he was making a goofy face in the other pic.
This was a wedding gift for my niece Sarah, of her, her husband Eddie and their golden retriever Toby James. But I didn’t want to wait until her wedding to give it to her, so I told her the frame was her shower gift and the painting their wedding gift, and gave it early. I’m not known for my patience.
It was my first time painting people portraits in ages, and I think the first time I painted a guy, ever. 2011. Acrylic on canvas, 24×36.
There were tears. Mission accomplished. :)
