A hidden painting

A painting often reveals more than is given away at first glance.  We can perhaps learn more about an artist by looking at their process, than if we were to see a finished piece.


The Painting Process; We started out by grabbing a large canvas I had lying in the studio and seeing where it would take us.  In the photo below you can see Emily’s portrait up on the wall.  The original idea was to have her relaxing at work (as she is a student & keen car mechanic) with the dog.

Still life commissions

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

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.
