"Winter Trails" is a scene of the many winter trails on Prince Edward Island. One of my New Year's resolutions is to enjoy the outdoors more this winter whether it be snowshoeing, hiking, or skiing. What are your New Year's resolutions? The original is available framed (11x14)
In the Studio
I finished three commissions and one is nearing completion. It was a very busy November and December. Two were Christmas presents that I really enjoyed creating. Part of my New Year's resolutions is painting in my art room everyday. I have a solo exhibition in October and plan to have a series of fall paintings completed by then.
Most Recent Work
Keeping in touch with the client as I went along to ensure they were getting what they wanted made the commission paintings flow much better. This painting I completed recently was given as a Christmas present. When I followed up with the her. She said, "it was exactly what I had dreamed of" It is so rewarding hearing that my client is thrilled with the result of a commission painting.
Tips for the Artist in You
When I was painting the commission piece above, I used four different photos to complete the painting.
One thing you have to be careful of is that you continue to have the light source coming from the same direction. In the photos that I used, the light source and shadows were not the same. You have to be sure to keep it consistent when transferring it to your painting.
As an artist, I am curious as to what your New Year's resolutions are. Drop me an email and let me know.
If you have any questions, please send me an email and I would be more than happy to firstname.lastname@example.org
A Photo from my Deck
I am going to have to wait to start some of my New Year's resolutions (snowshoeing/skiing).
We still don't have enough snow yet and doesn't look like much in site.
