About the commission process....
In addition to creating pieces similar to previous works, I can develop a complete new concept for a specific space. With my background in graphic design and expertise in PhotoShop, I can create a mock-up using images of a specific space. My clients can provide digital images or I can do a site visit and take photos, then create an image that works for the space, considering paint chips or fabric samples. Below is an example of the process....
This is the client's room with the source painting with colors that worked perfectly. The client felt they needed something bigger to fill the space. I recommended a tiptych (3 panels).
Mock up of 3 piece painting based on the original done with PhotoShop
Detail of mock-up used to color match
The next client provided an image of their unfinished wall in their new home and a photo of their rug and dining room furniture, plus the paint color code for the wall colors not yet applied. They also provided a description of the cabinet that would be finished in the alcove which I simiulated for the mock up.
I created a complete mock up of the room with colors. Then did a miniature painting so they could confirm the rug color worked with the blue I planned to use in the painting.
