My love and me by Peter Zentjens

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

The second installment of this duo portrait. A while ago I upload my self portrait, which is actually only half the artwork. I wasn’t sure the other half would be comfortable with her picture being on a website like redbubble but when she saw that I uploaded mine she said that those 2 should never ever be parted. She is right.

The “she” I’m talking about, the beautiful girl in this image, was my girlfriend. Today, so many years later, she is my lovely wife. These 2 portraits grace our entrance hall and get a lot of reaction so I really wanted to upload them to redbubble although I don’t think that they are likely to be bought. So now, with my wife’s approval, ….

Here is the other portrait from the duo:

    This is very cool! Really great effect. How did you do this?
  • I shot us against a simple single colored background. Then I had the negatives scanned professionally. Next step: hours and hours in photoshop creating the backdrop from scratch, cutting us out from the old background, manipulating at least 2 images into our new bodies, creating a glass sphere etc etc. Glad you like it.

    Wow this is stunning, and such a tribute to the two of you, for being a supportive loving couple, so refreshing to see….You both look beautiful and happy….and your work is very good, creative and well done…cheers

  • Thank you very much Kym. We are indeed a very close couple. I miss her enormously at the moment, she is gone on holidays for a few days without me, something that is very rare. We do almost everything together.
    I did use my time alone to get more painting done though, a new painting is in the pipeline. Yihaa!
