Commission Trials and Tribulations

18 Mar

So… I have been working on this commission.  My clients purchased a painting  awhile ago and wanted a companion piece in another season.  They are well-travelled and were keeping an eye out for inspiration. I started the painting, got mostly through it and wondered if the boat was too large. So I started it over.  Now when I look at the first painting – I think it is fine – not finished but fine.  Somehow, when a painting is in the early stages it may appear to be funky.  Almost all paintings do this.  And I know it – but started it over anyway.

Stay tuned for progress – I will  finish both and give them a choice.

The painting below is the companion piece!
