4109: Bynum Wedding Portrait Day 3

I’m back to the wedding commission and now I’m incorporating the wonderful high-quality photo she sent to me. The new photo has them in focus whereas the original photo had the background in focus but not them. So now I have the best of both worlds. I can use the photo of them and overlay it on top of the colors in the background. I also did some adjustments to the Photo to make the groom a little bit more dynamic. Very subtle changes to make it look like he is in the middle of a step forward.

After I refined the drawing a little bit more. Tomorrow I will fix the drawing and probably begin painting.

I also worked on creating a bank of ideas I can always pull from for paintings that need to happen in between important paintings like this one.
