Another finished commission. A bit challenging. The photo reference was not to accurate with the color. Thank goodness for other photo references provided by the client to help determine the proper color.
Just finished a commission. Was a bit of a challenge especially trying to figure out the background. I started with a cool blue, ultramarine blue. But the blue came across to cold. The pink around her eyes gave me the idea to paint the background a soft blue-green color. Perfect colors.
This has been an amazing year for pet portraits especially dog oil portraits. I have gotten commissions as far away as Dubai, Germany and Finland as well as local and around the US. It has been a pleasure to work such great clients. Most of the clients contacted me through my Etsy store, PaintingsbyMarlene.
