Goodbye Kiss - Finished

These are two of my former science students. She asked me to do a portrait of her and her fiancée. I didn't really want to until I saw the reference photo. I thought it was a really nice photo of the two of them. It was taken last semester when she was a student in my Anatomy & Physiology class. They're supposed to get married soon after she graduates from high school, I think.
I just started on it last night & did a little bit today. It's FC Polychromos on 11x14 bristol vellum. C & C welcome.

It's a very moving piece. I can see why she would want it done. Its a very nice piece. I like the blue green combination. She should be very happy with it.

Re: Goodbye Kiss - Finished

Beautiful finish Suzanne - love the vibrancy of the red hair, without being over done.. and mysterious way you managed to show a fuzzy cap, great texture, composition and general over all pop - Wonderful work!
