Wedding Commission

This was a commissioned painting that I did for my sister.  It was such a cute photo and I was so happy to do this for her.  The color pallet is a little different than what I normally do, but it’s what she chose, and I think it turned out beautifully.  It has a very soft and sweet feel to it.

In order to keep my colors correct, I started with a monotone black and white painting, and then glazed color over it.  I actually enjoyed this method of painting better than what I had been doing.  So this was very good for me to do.

I hope she enjoys the painting.  I enjoyed painting it.  I love you sis!

Here’s my most recent portrait.  I started a new painting method from a commission I did recently, and I really enjoy it.  I do my first layer in monotone black and white and then layer color over it.  This helps me keep the colors how I want and make sure the values are correct.

I’m thinking about repainting a few of my previous paintings now that I have this method figured out.  So keep an eye out for those.  I love the bold colors in this one, which I needed after doing some more muted colors from a recent commission.  This one is available for purchase at my store.

I hope you enjoy this one as much I did.  If you want your own commissioned piece go to this page, and if you want to see videos with my voice over commentary, please go to my Patreon page.  Make sure to hit that subscribe button so you don’t miss out on anything, and I’ll talk to you next time!

Here’s the newest painting.  I even have the speed videos for it again.  You guys seemed to enjoy that last time.  I was also thinking of making a very about how you can transfer you traditional painting skills to digital painting.  If you guys would like that, let me know about it in the comments.

Ok.  Here’s the painting.  I had a lot of fun experimenting with layers in this one.

Shh… This is only for you.

The first order of business is to tell about the winner for contest.  My mother ended up the winner.  Aren’t parents wonderful?  She chose this painting as her favorite and the one she wanted as the free art print.  She said in her post that this one reminded her of all the times I sat by the window to watch the rain.  It’s true I do love watching the rain, and I love a good thunderstorm.  So I hope you enjoy your print Mommy!  I love you!

I have one more thing to share with you.  You may have heard of the Patreon page I created, but I thought I’d give you a little tour so you know what you’d be getting.

If you’re not familiar with Patreon, the basic premise is that you give a certain amount (the lowest one is just $2!!!) each month, and for that contribution, you can get different rewards such as reference photos, photos of my layering process, 10% off any store item, monthly postcards with a new artwork of mine, full length painting videos, and wallpapers of my artwork that fit a standard computer screen.  You can choose the level you want and how much you pay.  So go check it out and comment below once you’ve done that!

I’m also close to being done with my current art series.  Who’s excited for that?  I know I am.  If you have thoughts on the pieces I’ve completed so far, leave that in the comments too.  I love hearing from you!

Hopefully you have a wonderful day and I’ll talk to you later!
