Finished Commission Landscape

Finished Commission Landscape

I posted the initial drawing for this piece a couple of weeks ago.  This is a scene from Amsterdam, taken from my client’s photo.  It shows a clock tower and canal launch amidst trees.  The photo was on a rainy day, so I modified the weather and foliage quite a bit.  This was an unusual tall size, custom made to fit the space where it goes.  My client was very happy with it, so that’s all good.  Hope you enjoy, and thanks.

Here’s the one I’ve been working on.  I wanted to be sure the present came as a surprise when given, hence the delay in posting this.  This is Heidi, and she’s adorable with her pink toenails.  And, yes, those were in the reference photo.  The resting pose and elevated viewer eye level presents some challenges, so I composed her to fade into the background.  My client thought it worked out well, so that’s all that really matters.  Hope you enjoy, and thanks.

Another Small Landscape

Here’s another of the little landscape, or “skyscape,” as I like to call them, paintings.  This is about a 5×7, so it’s pretty small.  Framed, it makes a really nice little piece.  The photo enlarges the texture, but the real painting does not really look too textured.  This size makes a great little addition to a small space, something nice to spark up an area.  These are also very affordable, so if interested, contact me.  Enjoy, thanks and have a great weekend.

Again, I’ve got one pet portrait I’m working on but not quite finished.  The others are still holding as surprises for their recipients.  So, here’s another from the archives.  Enjoy, and thanks.

I’ve been doing another series of small landscapes.  These are no more than 6×8, so the photo shows a lot of the texture of the painting, which doesn’t appear so much in real life.  I’ll frame these and make a nice presentation.  These will all be priced very reasonably for original art.  Enjoy and have a great weekend.

I’ve gotten to do some more pet portraits, but most of them are presents and I need to wait a bit before posting them.  One thing I don’t want to do is spoil a surprise.  Here’s one from the archives.  Hope you enjoy.  Thanks.

New Project

Here’s the drawing for a new project.  This is the first in a series of three paintings I’m doing for a client.  This one is of Amsterdam, and is based on a photo my client took.  The tower is very interesting, and has some really unique architectural features.  This one should be fun to work on.  More as this develops.  Thanks, and have a good weekend.

Here’s today’s pet portrait.  This is Bailey, a very proper looking boxer.  She has really beautiful eyes, and I enjoyed trying to get the light and color just right.  My client was very pleased with the painting, so I guess it all worked out.  Enjoy, and thanks.

Thursday Portrait

Okay, so this one is a little different.  I had a request to do a horse portrait.  I’ve done horse portraits a couple of times before, but not in quite a while.  I had to really refresh about horses and work with a photo that had some issues, but worked to get this done as a birthday present for a very special young lady.  I think it worked out okay, and I certainly enjoyed the change of pace.  Hope you enjoy, thanks and have a great weekend.

Here’s a nice portrait just finished.  This is Bob, and he is one very sweet and cute dog.  The reference photo was in very bright sunlight and I tried to get the sheen the sun made on his coat.  The painting looked much better in real life.  That’s one of the problems with posting these photos; they just don’t do the painting justice sometimes.  In any event, enjoy and thanks.
