Floral Commission -- watercolor

This commissioned triptych is about 90% completed. it was a nice commission and easy project -- because i was so motivated to work with the space and fill it. the client was very clear on what she wanted-- and i could envision right away... how i wanted to handle it.

it was the opposite of HOW SWEET THE SOUND -- which was a more complex subject and less-clear project.

nevertheless, i was pleased with both! a challenging couple of weeks in the studio -- but rewarding.

Beautiful paintings, all of them! It's great when you face a challenge and you succeed so beautifully, isn't it?

What wonderful results for your two commissions. Surprised your clients wanted that blue wash at the end - it creates atmosphere but loses the quality of your wonderful transluscent washes. Two great pieces.
