My First Commission

Following the success of Café Oswald’s, I was absolutely delighted to be asked to create a bespoke painting of a good friend’s family caravan. It was a bit trickier as beforehand I could choose the features I wanted to play a part in the painting, but here I had to stick much more to the truth. I still used my artistic licence to play around with a few things but tried to stick to what was there. A big part of the painting we discussed was the river. We really wanted that to feature on the image even if in reality it was much lower. The caravan was in particular bad spot to photograph from the front but a few sunset shots helped me out greatly. (And climbing over a few fences helped too!)
