Another Christmas Surprise

Oil on Canvas

This Christmas surprise was done from the photo above.
There are a few changes, as you can see. One is the negative
space between the couple. I chose to eliminate it to 
avoid a possible distraction. I used a couple of different 
photos so the expressions are a bit different too.

I have been painting portraits from life for several years.
Hopefully I've learned a little bit.   :-)
