Just finished these two paintings that were commissioned for a baby’s room. The mom sent the images to me as a download. From the download I was able to draw the images, then transfer them to 11×14 canvases…. then on came the color.
This was a straight forward job…very clip arty. Although, I don’t normally paint in this style….I did enjoy doing these.The mom knew exactly what she wanted….I like that because it takes the guess work out of it… Plus the images were clear and straight forward…..again this made my job easier.
As with all commission work…I try to get all the specifics…such as size, color, composition and price…down in writing with the client, before I begin working. There is nothing more frustrated than getting part way through a project and having an undecided client change their mind.
Also, with commission work….I always send pictures to the client as I work. Pictures of the various stages is a good way to communicate with clients and acts as visual record. It is harder for a client to change things later on if you have kept good communication throughout the creative process.
These two still have to be signed and then coated with a UVA protective acrylic coat….if all goes well… should be able to mail these out by the first of next week.
All the best to the family and their soon arriving baby!
