Sunday Sketch - First sketch of my new commission
Hi guys well this week I've been working on a sketch for my new commission. I have been asked to do 3 portraits of a lady's children. She has two girls and a boy and both girls have asked to be mermaids, so I decided to paint 3 seperate paintings but when they are put together make one picture. This is the first one that I am working on. I'm thinking of making it a mixed media piece and painting the face on paper then sticking it to the canvas as I feel like I could get a more accurate likeness rather than painting it straight on to the canvas. I'm going to do many more sketches of this in preparation and won't start the actual painting til I come back from my trip as I think once I start I will probabaly want to finish all 3 relatively close together. Anyway here is my sketch. If you would like to see more Sunday sketches click on the tab at the side of my page and you will be able to see work from many more artists!
