Commission four


Partial watercolor

For commissions four and five. I neglected to take the pen only photos.  Too busy to remember, I guess.  It was hard to keep it all straight sometimes as I just was trying to keep forging ahead.  Anyway, here is the pencil-up for four and its preliminary watercolor, too.  After they were all done, I think this one was my favorite.

      Thanks you, Linda. This was the biggest commission I have ever done and it was a little on the nerve racking side. The colors were all off on her pictures and I had to rely on verbal descriptions. Three of the houses were “taupe” colored but pinkish in the photos so I had to guess what “muddy taupe” really was. I must have been fairly close because she was pleased with the results. I even got a photo of the framed and hung portraits. It was a good Christmas season for me.
