Gift Ideas for Couples

couple portrait

If you are looking for a very special gift for a young couple then why not celebrate their union with a painted portrait.  This painting started with a dark photo taken somewhere on a street in front of a door. 

reference photo

I used the scroll work of the door to add some interest in the background and cropped the image to bring the focus strictly to the couple's warm embrace. In the photo the eyes were not at all visible so I tried to bring highlights out Now the painting can be displayed and enjoyed by the couple.
