This was the first painting of this type that I had been commissioned to do. I was requested to collate images of personal interest to produce a very personal painting. It was an extremely enjoyable commission by a farm. After an number of discussions I attended to farm to photograph the requested views, animals and buildings.
I met with the customer to view the photographs I had shortlisted, images that I felt would firstly produce a lovely painting plus compliment each other when put together.
A much missed dog
This painting was commissioned with a very tight deadline as it was a present. This was completed in six weeks but in future I would wish to have a deadline of 8-12 weeks.
Approval was given on the final images to be worked from before any painting was started.
A well dressed horse
The painting was done on a board due to the size requirement. The painting was requested to be 85cm x 85cm.
