Since one can blog about anything, thought I talk a little about my creative process. A house portrait commission came in last week. This is a good starting point to see how I create something out of a concept. Unless one can paint from the property, the trick is to get as many photos for reference as possible. Relying on a few px from client cant tell the whole story. I was lucky enough to spend time on this property over the years. This takes alot of the guesswork & stress out of this commission. I can just let myself respond emotionally & physically to the subject.
