It didn’t took many days for me to realize that I really had to paint this picture – even when the photo was already expressing the euphoria quite well itself. It was also a great motivation for me to improve my skills in painting people. It was self-evident that this work of art could not be made very small. So I chose 80 x 60 cm canvas to work with.
The picture below shows the painting after two sessions. First I sketched the picture with pencil and then painted the whole canvas light sky blue. Next day I started painting faces – because I usually start from the hardest parts of the picture.
Let’s see when I feel like sitting down with this one next time. I’ll let you know then.
