This is a name painting I produced for a little girl named Leah. It was her first birthday so I was commissioned to paint a woodland themed painting including her name. Here is the final painting and my sketches and character designs.
I hope to do more work like this, it is so enjoyable to get the acrylics out and spend time over a painting. I usually work digitally for illustration commissions as it is fast and can be easily amended if the client needs things changed. I love being able to paint at my own speed. The hours just disappear, I look up and find I have been painting squirrels for 4 hours! Not a bad way to spend an afternoon!
If you want to commission me, or know someone who might, please don't hesitate to email me to discuss themes etc.
