I had a diverse month…

July was a busy month for commissions with a really diverse lot of subjects. This is my classroom where I get set new challenges and learn a heap whilst making someone’s vision of a painting come to life.

This one is of a famous hiking trail in Japan. I loved the challenge of getting the mist to look look mist.

and lastly, a tugboat going about its work. Lots of detail here but that was offset by the loose sky and reflections.final 3

Hope your month has been as varied and interesting!

      Thanks so much for your kind words Crystal. The tugboat was a bit tricky and the gardens very relaxing. I enjoy the challenge of different subjects I wouldn’t normally choose myself. Having a little me painting time now.

    Wow, they are really diverse subjects, and you have done a wonderful job with them Lindy. Pick for me is Japanese walking trail – that view and mist is super. Oddly enough I really like the tug boat too, and you know I’m not a boat person.

      That tug boat was a killer with all that detail – but very satisfying to know I could do it! I enjoyed the mist and was really happy with how it turned out.

    What a wonderful array of your fine works of art. You captured the mist and what a difficult thing to do. I was wondering what mediums you used as each looks different from the other.

      Yes- they all do look different but they’re all done with acrylic paint on canvas except for the 2 dogs which were done on paper.
      I do have a personal style but it does sometimes change for commissions depending on the subject. I did use the palette knife a bit for the vegetation in the Japanese Mist one.
      Glad you enjoyed them!
