This “Mother and Daughters” Family Portrait Painting was an Anniversary surprise for her husband. It was hard to coordinate so we could keep this a secret. We worked odd hours and had many critiques.
The Mother wanted the everyone to wear white. The very pretty darker sister on the left was starting here teenage year wearing braces at the time so we all decided not to include them for this “Mother and Daughters” Family Portraits Painting. The older sister had the most beautiful slightly freckled skin tone I found just adorable with her gorgeous hair. The younger sister also had beautiful hair and a wide eyed look her mother wanted me to capture in the painting. Because she was going to start with braces decided her look to be more of innocence showing just a hint of her teeth. Rather focusing on her beautiful eyes. Their exquisite mother was placed in the middle of her children to complete this warm, loving monotone portrait pastel painting.
This portrait painting was a surprise anniversary gift. My client’s husband was very emotional when he was presented with this gift from his girls and displayed this pastel painting in his office.
Unveiling this painting to her husband who had tears in his eyes was the perfect reaction to his beautiful Girls.
