I have 4 commissions to complete in the next month or so, so I have about 6 paintings on the go at the moment. Due to a rather, in fact insanely busy time in my life, I have not been painting as regularly as I normally do… this week finally have been able to get right into it with very little interruption.
I have made a start on 2 of the commissions:
the top one, the client said: ‘do whatever you want’ ,
the bottom one is to compliment another painting of mine this person bought last month,..she wants them either side of her bed. So I had guidelines for the colours used and shapes etc.
Both are going to Australia.
This one below sold before it was finished and I completed it and was posted to Australia yesterday:
Im waiting on a canvas I have ordered to arrive so I can start a big painting togo to Holland, 🙂
and there is also one going to Alaska, a lovely little one that I have started, just the background so far, but looking really good.
My practice boards are getting a total workout, always trying out different techniques and colour combos, I have two main things going on right now…
1/dark background with lighter bold shapes and/or stneciling… and
2/ light bright spring colours, (not pale summer colours) but more intense blues, greens, purples, yellow, white… combining them in a way that best expresses my feeling,
really enjoying where I am at with my art/process at the moment, fell like I am able to combine all my experience with what is inside of me and adequately create that feeling. 🙂
