All wrapped and ready for it's new home! I finished a smaller commission last night after doing a few little finishing touches. I tend to use oil pastel to add last minute texture and colour. It adds that little bit of drama that the paintings need. Photos to follow once it's hanging up in situ!
As I mentioned before, when working on smaller commissions I work over a few pieces of paper. This is one of the paintings that was working beautifully so I began to think of it as a separate piece. I then added a little bit more oil pastel to ensure this painting felt complete and good enough to stand alone - it feels complete now!
