It’s been a great summer for still life painting. I’ve had the pleasure of discovering some lush, colourful gardens with an abundance of inspiration to paint my still life commissions. This year has also seen seen an increase in the number of demands for personal, still life commissions. So with that in mind I thought I would continue with the theme from the last blog. This week I take you through the simple process of commissioning your own still life painting.
Commissioning a landscape painting is unknown territory for many people. So I’m writing this blog to take you ‘behind the scenes’ and show the whole process of commissioning your own landscape painting from start to finish. What the process involves and which choices you might make as the commissioner. This particular painting is being painted in the Swiss Alps.
This blog shows the painting process behind a Child portrait painted entirely from life. From day 1 to the finished painting. My experience from painting Mathilda at 10yrs old was surprising in many ways. I not only thoroughly enjoyed it, but learned a great deal.
Winter Painting is right up my street, the outdoors and snow sports combined, so if there is an opportunity to go for a hike or a ski with my painting equipment in my backpack I’m there. These particular winter painting days came as a bonus though, with no travel needed it snowed right here on my doorstep!
I am very happy to have a collection of my works currently on display at the Willow gallery in Oswestry for their annual ‘open exhibition’ alongside some other wonderful artists including Kay Boyce with her ink collection and artist in residence Karl Robinson.
