Commission Accomplished

This painting was a commissioned artwork which thankfully the parents loved.  I thoroughly enjoyed painting it and am happy with the finished product.

This double portrait is really excellent, Carol! The muted colours give it a timeless feel. A lovely painting to own even if you do not know the children!

Thank you so much Marie.It is actually amazing how much you learn about a child while doing a photoshoot. It all helps when painting them.

Gorgeous work Carol, I am not surprised the parents loved it.
Double portraits are always so difficult for me. What sweet expressions you have captured!!! You are a very courageous woman. Lovely!

Thanks for the visit Barbara, and the comment. That is high praise indeed, coming from a great artist like you, thank you.

Thank you Kathleen. This was my first double portrait but I did a photo shoot first which helped to find out more about the characters of the children. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it!

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.
