It is my absolute favorite thing to hear from sweet husbands looking for the perfect anniversary gift to surprise their wife. It doesn't hurt when the bride is such a beautiful subject to paint. I loved her half sleeve tattoo!
Monique Lhuiller always has such beautiful, classic gowns. For this dress from her Bliss Collection I did a watercolor base, and painted on the lace using a white acrylic. In person this gives a beautiful texture to the piece. The sash is embellished with glitter for a little sparkle.
