Laying out a painting
As mentioned before I seem to have a lot of commissions on at the moment and this is one of them. Commissions can be quite scary I think. Just painting on a large canvas and the investment involved can be bad enough when you have been painting quite small for a while! Anyway, I have pretty much finished the first one, which I would post but I haven't managed to get a good photo of it. So, I thought I would post the stages that I go through when laying out a painting. Already I can see I need to lift the right hand side of the painting, so it's definitely worth taking photos .. you can see a lot more this way. I am quite pleased with the start though. I will post more as I go along.
For those of you that were interested in my give away... all I can say is huge apologies..but the little painting I had earmarked got sold (I can't pass up the money at the moment!)... so I am afraid we will have to wait a while until I have time to do another one... but I haven't forgotten, honest!
