Thank you for cheering for me yesterday! The comments came so quickly that I was able to start with a big smile on my face. The first layer is down, but what I'm showing now is not the big painting. Actually it is pretty big (18"x30") but it's not "the BIG" painting.
The lady I am painting for asked for angels, but not in my usual bright colors. She is going to reuse a frame that she likes, so the measures have to be precise.
I did a trial painting on watercolor paper, using a ratio that is adequate to the BIG painting, to see if I understood what she likes.
And she did. She liked the angels, the colors, the feel of the painting.... the only thing that wasn't good was - that in my head I turned the measures the way they suited me, not the way she wrote them.
It is supposed to be a landscape painting... which is a completely different story. Time to rethink the composition, size, everything... Good thing that I am in a mood for challenges!
