My First Commission

I'm working on a painting of some branches for a co-worker and so far it's going well. I thought I'd post photos of my progress...

These are some of my initial sketches.

This one is the sketch we decided to go with.

Off to the art store to buy some warm colours and fancy papers. I decided that the base of this painting will be a paper collage. This will add texture to the piece. Also, I don't like painting on canvas.

Some experimentation with paint and paper before I went to work on the canvas. I'm adding green to compliment the red berries.

This is what I have so far... there is still lots to be done. I think I'll have time to work on it this week a bit because school has briefly quieted down. I can't wait to paint the berries!
