Last month, I did a commission for a collector who wanted a painting similar to one I had done previously. He requested a few alterations to the original and a smaller size. I was happy to give it a go. I liked his finished painting so much that I altered the original.
I had received feedback about the trees looking scary and dead (okay winter does remove the leaves) but they all had a point. I don’t want to paint dead and scary … I’m all about happy!
I wish I knew who first said that a painting isn’t finished until it is sold. That is so totally true. If you know, please leave a comment!
Below is the original and the sketch.
