Commission WIP

I received a commission to paint a home that the customer grew up in. I had never painted a house before so I accepted the challenge. When I took pictures of the house there were not any leaves on the trees yet. This was good for placement and drawing purposes.

 However, I knew that it would be a cold and bland painting. So after I drew the house and was ready to begin, I went back and took a few more pictures with everything beautiful and green.

Now I had color and shadows which gave the house some personality.

I think it is headed in the right direction.


It is not the form that dictates the color, but the color that brings out the form.
