However the day of the wedding itself was just incredibly lovely and I spent the morning with everyone as they were getting ready for the big event in the afternoon, and just happened to capture a great shot of John walking across the grounds with his grandfather, my daughter-in-law's dad.
The instant I saw the photo I knew I wanted to paint the scene. And I wanted so badly for it to come out well. I was so sure I would screw it up, but I spent most of the day on it, and so far I'm still pretty darn happy with how it turned out!
This was done on a sheet of white 9x12 Wallis, various pastels.
