My latest painting of my niece did hit the bell. Few of my work colleagues did ask if I could paint some for them,and one already have requested this commission. I don't know if I did right thing,but when we went down to money subject, I told him to pay only if he likes the finished painting. When he requested this commission, I had to be honest to my work mate,that I'm on learning curve and I can't be sure how the painting will go. He did appreciate me being honest, and he said it's very fair play offer. Anyway, after we've spent time discussing which photo,and other minor concerns,he did offer to pay in full when we meet - I refused,but it's lifted me up, as I took it for trusting in my skills,that I'll paint the sisters nicely. It's A3 canvas board. I have outlined girls this morning,and later I did basing blocking. We've agreed the background will be blurred, no river, no field of grass and any other features... Because of their sweaters, I've decided to make the background pinkish/light bluish from left to right. I think it'll nicely cope against dark blue sweater of the front girl,and then light blue will give nice contrast to the red sweater of the girl at the back ... What you think about my choice please? I bet it won't be as good looking as my latest portrait,because it's simply selfie took by mobile phone,it's lower resolution didn't help when I had to magnify it for painting purposes... As you see the lighting is kind of flat all over the photo,now it's up to me to make it nicely, not as flat looking as it is originally. I'm sorry for too long description, I feel it's good to let you know full story Thank you.
