The Husband

24 x 36 ” | digital painting

From old family photos. I found this photo of what I assume is a married couple. The wife will be next. I tried to do this in an impressionism style that is a kind of blend between styles like some of Van Gogh’s and Munch’s works. I flatter myself to think I came close to my goal.

The original photo

This is the scan of the original photo. I do not know the year. I was a little disappointed with the background, since the doorway to the left seemed interesting. However, the rest of the background was a bit dull. For that reason, I struggled a while to come up with a way to portray these two. I went through several iterations until I finally decided that I would split them up into two pieces and add my own background.
