One of the pieces she liked was my Father's Day piece, a sweet digital cartoon drawing of me and my daughter, so I started off to do another drawing in that vein as the basis for the painting:
At this point, the name of the painting was "Love Seat", because I liked the sound of it, and I toyed with the idea of drawing Cathy and her husband into the painting. At this point, though, I decided that was a bridge too far. Even though I do portraits all the time, I was not even a little bit interested in getting into portraiture on this painting. Maybe next time, right?
So I used a lightbox to trace the sketch onto another sheet to nail down the poses and what not. This drawing would be the "anchor" image to the painting.
