The Wedding Gift

The Wedding Gift. My next project. One of my daughter's friends from college is getting married in May. I want to give her a painting - something personal, reflecting her and her new husband. Their faith is the most important thing to them, everything revolves around that.

I went straight for the Madonna and Child. 
A copy of an old painting from an old damaged book. I made an acrylic transfer of the painting. 

I prepped the canvas with a background reminiscent of stained glass. I didn't do too much detail as I'm sure most of it will be covered up as the painting progresses.

I used these new acrylic paint markers. Great for this part of my painting.
