“Sweethearts ": the original sweethearts

Cherry frame with off white matt

“Sweethearts” is the second painting in the series, in the original sweethearts they are very young (see above), here they’re depicted all grown up, sitting on the headland watching the whales and rainbows

stretched canvas

This is a pencil drawing in my Visual Diary (A2) size…i used a mechanical pencil…then photographed the artwork and painted using a Wacom Graphic Tablet Intuos 4 in Photoshop CS4

    Simply beautiful Karin……
    I love how the textures seem to imply that they’re older…..or is that just me??
    And the colours seem to denote twitight…….
    Is this you & your hubby?
    Love it!

  • Hi Chris, thank you so much, oh yes, i hadn’t thought of that either….i love that idea…yes, it’s twilight…i think she’s more like my sister, but yes, the idea behind it is me and the hubblescope lol :) x
