Here's a commission I'm working on at the moment. The size is 36x64". It's based on a previous painting here:
It's for the main foyer of the Cancer Society. They would have purchased the 'Footsteps' painting but thought the boy in it needed a helping hand, which is what the Cancer Society does. So my Dad graciously modelled with my son for the photos and I'm really enjoying doing this because I already know how most of it will go so it lets me focus more intently on some more subtle things I've been learning about colour lately - soon to be revealed in my 'Mastering Colour' lesson. I'll be teaching a workshop on colour this coming weekend and these folks will be my guinea pigs for my colour teaching. Should be interesting.
