Commissions


A friend asked me to do a painting
from a photo she'd taken of the village 
where she stayed with friends on a recent trip to Italy.


11 x 14 oil 

This was image she gave me:


and asked if I could "highlight" the apartment they rented!? 

I was a bit daunted by the lack of light and value
so I played around with it in Procreate. 
bumping up the value of the apartment they rented just slightly.   


Commissions can be a struggle, 
especially if the client has a preconceived notion
 about how they want it to look. 

This is not how I usually paint,
 but it was actually quite fun. 
And she loves it!
