I loved this photo that a client sent me of her two children at the beach. I was excited to paint it from the moment it showed up in my email box and I was not disappointed by the process.
The photos I receive from clients are all over the board as far as quality, lighting, resolution, etc. It’s always preferable to work from high quality images so I can see more detail and translate that into the painting. This photo had a lot going for it – great shadows, high resolution and good focus – not to mention, two cute kids.
