|Mary and Liam, the finished painting.|
This portrait was a birthday present for Mary, from her husband Liam and shows both of them.
|First layer (oil paint thinned with Sansodor), to get everything in the right place!|
The next layer is in colour, and is a careful investigation of tones and colour. I like to start with the faces.
