I wanted to paint a big 150cm width painting, and so moved the couple around and found this composition fascinating.
Leaving a big space to the right of the painting with a gradient, you can see the pair disappearing into the dark zone, which makes their situation more intimate.
“On my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I’m too misty and too much in love…”
… Misty Lyrics by Johnny Mathis.
