Man and wife characature portrait

Cool Dude and his wife

by Brendaartwork18

This portrait is meant to be characature style rather than realism. On A3 in water colour. The couple are married and work at our Sporting Club Culatrense. At one point I decided the guy would be graphite and the rest coloured. Also his wife was at the point of me adding her glasses. I was happy so far but nervous about adding the glasses so I took a head and shoulders photocopy (The original is full bodies to calf). I repainted the A4 photocopy added the glasses and coloured the guy's face. It looked ok, better coloured. I transferred my energies to the real thing. It took ages to get so I was happy. The girl and glasses were a cinch but the guy, oh dear, the copy is, always going to be best but I finished and delivered. Waiting for payment now... slow coming. But the wife took delivery and loved it.
