Portrait Painting and Pumpkins

 It's been a real thrill to be asked recently to create some very special portraits. This was something totally unexpected but an exciting journey in my Art & Illustration.

Straight from my cutting mat was this lovely family, This portrait was created as wedding present

Something more unique than a toaster, mind you i never got a toaster and i love Toast :) 

Commissions can be nerve wracking but i spend time going through lots of photos and sketching and making notes and its like building a story within the painting.

A recent Anniversary present commission i would also like to share with you,

I loved painting this and its now headed off to the USA to be with this lovely
stylish couple.

And lastly from my latest commissions i have this wedding card

I am enjoying working with watercolours and exploring building illustration with layers.

Its been great to do these custom art pieces and i hope to do more, but i thoroughly looking forward to exploring a few personal projects involving pumpkins.

Don't you just love a pumpkin ?
