The vision was muted tones (greens, yellows, browns, creme..) and trees on two 3' x 4' canvas. At first, I was very intimidated by the size of the project but then one night I woke up with a "vision!"
After some trial and error, this is what I came up with!
|Two 3' x 4' paintings|
|Showing off my paintings and scaling how big they are!|
Next, I added a distressed border and plumped up the trees a little bit more.
|The finished product!|
The paintings turned out really well and they were a big hit during the holiday party. Lately, the only paintings I have sold were pre-made so it was a great experience to make someone else's vision come to life. Our friend provided great feedback along the way which I also appreciated. People usually just say "make what you want! I like anything..." but in the back of your mind, you worry that your customer will feel pressured to purchase. With a little guidance, I was able to provide two original paintings that complimented the living room well and more importantly our family friend really liked!
I had so much fun creating these paintings and I can't wait for the next project to come along.
