It’s my Mum’s 60th birthday so I decided to paint my favourite photo of her with her twin granddaughters (my nieces). I love the light in the photo and thought it was a good opportunity to vary the thickness of the paint to vary the depth and texture across the piece. There was also a lot of detail in the focal point which I wanted to capture.

This took about 10-12 hours in total to complete and is oil paint on panel, 18″ x 12″.
