This was done for a true Collingwood AFL supporter. I had complete artistic license and made it more personal by adding his little girl to this work.
Ok to get to work this week on two commissions. One is of an Australian Magpie bird and the other is of deep red orchids which I will paint as a still life.
And I am also busily trying to get my studies up to date with my cartoon/illustration course. Oh yes and also I need to start a new piece for an exhibition early next year titled scarlet stories.
Just one other thing too, it is only four weeks until Christmas, aaaarrrrgggghhhh.
Have the best Tuesday.
Thought I should upload a pic of this commission I have completed. It is of significant importance to the customer as they holiday down this way often and he was specific with his criteria to have his girls included and some other attractions, but overall I had artistic license which is fun and challenging. This is a large oil on canvas.
I’ve been having a lot of fun and challenge working on my next commission painted in oils.
The best part is that I was given creative freedom and after a bit of to and fro with preliminary sketches, I got the composition worked. I have come to realise this is the part I enjoy, the to and fro of getting it right. I also get satisfaction out of ideas/feedback from the client and enjoy nurturing these relationships throughout the creative process. And I do prefer working on these larger artworks. This will be finished over the next week and I will post it then.
