On the Easel

Working on a big 16 x 20" commission piece this morning. Sunset, country road, power poles..all my favorites to paint. I'm trying to keep the colors in harmony but not too pastel. I think adding the deep greens and browns will help balance it out. Right now it's verging on bad motel art from the 80's.

  1. This one looks auspicious, so far. Love the blues of the clouds. I have often thought with artists, how it must be difficult to do things on commission. Especially portraits of course: but with anything, trying to balance the requestor's expectations with your own artistic vision. I would like to hear your thoughts on this sometime.
