The week has come to an end and I have finished this guy up! The parameters for this commission weren’t too restrictive, which allowed me to put a lot of my style into it. There were really only two items I needed to keep in mind on this project:
1. The client has a red couch so didn’t want too much red in the final piece.
2. She also didn’t want anything real masculine
In making this work, I aimed for the atmospheric background to have as much of an impact as the foliage. This meant keeping the foliage pretty simple. The red leaves against the background have grown on me and overall and I think the greens in the work will be a great contrast to her red couch. I’m quite pleased with the finished piece – I hope the new owner will be as well!
