The Making of “RH Nights in Paris”
Reference images For the Artwork
Photos of the subject were taken & compiled with images in Paris from our albums.
The Development Process
Studies of Varying Detail
A rough study in pencil & marker charted out the best locations for the elements in this artwork. Then, another rough study was made in Photoshop with the reference photos. A more refined pencil study worked out the added design elements and details.
Updates On the Artwork
The outline of the main elements were painted in. Then, the colors were blocked in. More detail was added to the main subject, then the background elements. After seeing that Notre Dame was drawing the eye away, it was darkened.
Completing the Painting
Hanging Up The Framed Artwork
After the last touches were added to the painting, varnish was applied to it. Then, this artwork got framed & hung on the wall.
