House Portrait Painting - Behind the Scenes

House Portrait Painting - Behind the Scenes

April 24, 2021


Here's a quick and fun behind the scenes look at one of my recent house portrait paintings. This garden rambler is full of charming sophistication! I really enjoyed capturing all of the decorative details in this custom painting on canvas.

Notice that I started with the farthest away background first, which was the sky. From there I began building layers on top of each other to really help develop the detail and bring drama to the whole composition. Even though the focal point is the beautiful home, each area of the painting holds a special little detail to find. I hope you enjoy this behind the scenes look!
