‘Bath City’ Art
I thought I’d share a recent oil painting commission of Bath City with you that I finished recently. Had a real challenge getting in all the detail but still keeping it ‘loose’, got there in the end. I find these commissions force me to try new ideas and techniques that perhaps I wouldn’t normally take on. I know quite a few artists that aren’t too keen on doing commissions, but I have to say that although they aren’t always exactly in my style and can be downright daunting sometimes, I usually come away feeling like a little bit more of an accomplished artist purely because they’ve forced me from my comfort zone, well at least until the next one comes along!
I had planned to do some step-by-step images to accompany this post but as usual, I got so engrossed in the painting that photography goes straight out of the window. Maybe next time…
If you’d like any further information about commissions then don’t hesitate to contact me
