I love a romantic commission – this was a very special anniversary present, commissioned in secret. I had to work from photos, as the budget didn’t cover flights abroad. I especially enjoyed the challenge of trying to recreate the azulejos panels on the outside of this beautiful place, and to capture the romanticism of this Madrid scene at night. To make it super accurate, the clothes are what the couple were actually wearing that night. These things are very important.
