Mike and Heidi



This is a portrait of Mike and Heidi.  I wanted to paint them because in my mind, they were the perfect couple.  They love each other a lot and you can tell it whenever you’re around them.  They have a beautiful family of little girls.  Everyone they know feels so good to be around them because they treat others so nice.

I have positioned them so there is light and shadow on their faces.  You can see their facial structure,  There is volume.  Heidi is wearing a white shirt.  It is very simple in color, yet look at the different reflections it picks up  –  the red from his tie, the color of her skin.  Her light hair makes a beautiful contrast to the background behind her.  His dark suit and hair are another beautiful contrast.  I really love this painting.

This is an amazing portrait. You do feel as though you are getting a little glimpse into their personalities, and the colors and skin tones are warm and wonderful.

Looking at this painting makes you want to meet these people. They look like good, happy people. I especially love Heidi’s shirt. Your explanation of how you painted it was very helpful.
