It took me rather a long time to finish this first piece as it is a bit more detailed than I normally work. I wanted to be sure the recipient got the piece before I posted the finished work here.
|The original to use as my inspiration|
|My final rendition in oil|
|It all started with a sketch and some paint|
|Some rough colors are blocked in|
|A few details begin to take shape|
|Detail of my flying fish|
|Things are taking shape|
|Once my signature is on the piece that means it is complete!|
I just regret I forgot to take a high res photo with my real camera for my records. Live and learn.
For this same person I have another commission. This one is going to be amazing. The inspiration here is another piece by Breugel titled the Triumph of Death. With a title like that my wheels have been turning. I've done a few sketches but nothing to show yet.
|Just look at all the detail here. Whew, I can do it!|
|This is a couple of hours in. I like how fast it goes.|
