It is a very busy scene with not only the wedding but the beautiful beach background as well. I did not put a lot of detail into the audience as I did not want them to distract from the bride and groom who are just slightly off center to the left.I am hoping the curve in the staircase draws the viewers eye to that center of interest.In the background the curve of the wall barricade repeats the other curves.I also took liberty with the palm trees as in the original photo it appeared to be so windy the fronds were blowing straight up.
This painting is also on its way to South Wales.
The painting was eleven and a half inches square and I matted it with a three inch mat.
Colors used were combinations of Cad.Red,Lemon Yellow,Yellow ochre,Cad.Orange,Burnt seinna,,cobolt,alizarin crimson,and rose madder.I also used Schmincke rich gold dry gouche for her earring.
