‘F&F’ Puglia Illustration…

This is a commission or for better words an ‘illustration’ I did quite a while ago…

Something that I have been meaning to write a post about and put up some photos of – especially the process – given as it was more a drawing/illustration piece – a bit different to my usual commissions – of figures or people. The background/ or architecture was to take a back seat…

Having not drawn figures for a while for commission purposes, if more recently only to doodle (badly) in the backstreets of Lisbon, invariably at a table holding a glass of wine, I was a little apprehensive to get it spot on however keeping true to my style… it’s pretty obvious when a piece of artwork bears absolutely no resemblance to the figures it is depicting!

Take a look, and Veronica – I hope/ know they liked it… I look forward to seeing it hung up in real in November and to meeting F&F in person… um beijinho enorme para ti, a minha amiga!!

The Forth Rail Bridge

So I was really touched when a friend of mine from years ago (I used to pour her pints… good ones I believe) approached me to commission me to do something for her. There have been few occasions when I have worked with friends, usually that comes afterwards, incidentally this way around there’s slightly different pressure!

She asked me to do the Forth Rail Bridge in Scotland, a cantilever railway bridge, I had a lot of fun doing having never painted it before and because of its architectural intricacies, I wanted to get the perspective right but still will the fluidity and freedom I like to work with when building scenes. I think I did a good job… I believe she agreed too… she can now buy me a pint? no? Enjoy it Sarah!

‘Mumbai’ Architects Digest… Private Commission

So I created and shipped a private commission to Mumbai last week, from a client I gained via the show I did in NYC. They sent me through very detailed photos and an outline of exactly what they wanted – i.e. the view from their apartment in Mumbai ‘The Queen’s Necklace’ making prominent the CSR Train station, Gateway to India, Taj Mahal hotel and Oberoi. The apartment is being photographed and featured in Architects Digest, I was asked to create a focal landscape piece to hang in their main living space of the apartment, have a look!
