A very enjoyable Commission

I love doing Commission paintings and recently I was asked to do a painting for online friend Eileen in North Wales

The subject was "Annie" her lurcher - now I'm sort of used to drawing a lurcher aren't I, so right up my street  

With a good reference photo to work from and the brief was that the medium could be my choice.   Usually I know straight away the medium I'll use, but I was swayed between Oil and Watercolour here.   I often do a Watercolour to start me off as it gets me into the feel of a subject/testing tones etc.  However, for texture and colours in Annie's coat, Oil painting is great to use.   I finally opted to concentrate on Oil.

I'm delighted to say that Eileen and her husband were really pleased with the painting - (I surprised them with a gift of the watercolour too).  They have sent me photos of the paintings framed and now hanging on their walls.    


"Annie" - Oil 


and here's the Watercolour


  I LOVED PAINTING BOTH VERSIONS
AND I'M SO PLEASED EILEEN AND HER HUSBAND ARE HAPPY WITH THE PAINTINGS

How lovely! And how could they NOT be pleased! Annie is now immortalized like all the 'greats' in history! (which, of course, means you must now immortalize William and Hamish in oils!)
:D

Ann, we are more than happy with your paintings of Annie, we are absolutely thrilled with both of them. So kind of you to gift the watercolour too. The oil painting is in our living room and will be looked at, admired and enjoyed every single day, the watercolour is in our bedroom. So pleased to hear you enjoyed painting both versions. We never had a moments doubt that you wouldn't do a terrific job, thank you so much xx

It's lovely and a true treasure! I love the choice of frame!

I'll be sending the one you did for me this week. Sadly a few days ago, one of the dogs in the portrait has passed away, so I'm hoping your lovely painting will be a treasure for them as well! ❤️

Thanks very much Marie ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Kim, Thanks for letting me know that you will be sending the painting out this week. In fact I purposely have adjusted my Settings on Etsy, so that Sales do not show at the moment - when the art is received, then I will change my Settings back. So very sorry one of them has departed over the Rainbow Bridge, so sad.

Thanks Shammickite, Commissions can be quite a challenge, I'm always relieved when they turn out okay :)
