A Large Commission

Hi!  I have been working on a large painting, large for me anyway.  This is oil on a 36" X 48" deep canvas and will not be framed. It was fun setting it up, the client brought some of her favorite pieces over and then I added a lot of my items. I photographed the set up and waited for her approval. I sketched it on in charcoal and then covered the canvas with thin paint getting all the shapes and values in.  I just tackled one item at a time working my way around the canvas. She stopped by yesterday to see if, I felt I had done all I could do and wanted to see if she wanted anything changed. She loved it! Whew.  I signed it and painted the edges and now it dries, I'll deliver it to her and hang it soon. I think it will look great on her wall. I love the touches of red, so glad we went with red tulips. 

Makes me think I should do more large ones.  Have a wonderful day!
