New Commission

My latest finished painting . It’s a little unusual for me as , as well as being a commission , which I usually try to avoid , it’s also painted from the client’s own photograph . I use photos quite a bit for my work but they’re pretty much exclusively taken by me . I like to think that I use the photographic image , rather than copy it . In fact I usually work from a number of photos or a composite montage of them ( the wonders of Photoshop ) . The photo partly acts as a memory aid to remind me why the subject interested me in the first place . In this instance though , the client was particularly interested in this particular close and sent me a few images . West of Scotland closes often have a similar design and I’ve painted many like this so I didn’t feel I was stepping too far out of my comfort zone so I thought I’d have a go.
