Othello!

So I did this private commission before christmas, not my main line of work, but something that is fun and requires some concentration – catching an animal’s/person’s personality is easier said than done… it was in fact a christmas present to a very cool little man I know! I hope you like it Alfie! 😉 here are some photos below for you to see how he came about!

Rua Sao Vicente, Mina Gerais, Brazil

In a recent flurry of work/ private commissions (isn’t it always the way…) I was asked to create this home in Minas Gerais, a particularly poignant home for my client as it was where she grew up. I know the client personally, and knew the sentimental importance of the piece, so despite it being a simple building and a smaller piece, it took some time and thought. I thoroughly enjoyed giving the building it’s character, through my usual use of colour if in somewhat random way!

I was also asked to portray her parents in the piece from photos she supplied me with, which again gave it it’s personal touch – and proved trickier than said, given as resemblance is key on such small figures they required less mad dash brush stroke and  a steadier hand!

Take a look, I believe the client was very pleased ;)!

The Pere Family Illustration…

My latest project – a little different to others was to build a narrative for a French client of their family’s life in london since they moved here 20 years ago or so, they asked that it be done in a similar style to the first ever private commission I had (many thanks Pascal 😉 which was a little tricky at times as my style has developed, but I think I did it proud… take a look, from the Pere family’s cars, homes, hobbies, family memories we have it all. Working from photographs and information given to me by Sylvie, I pieced together firstly composition sketches to lay it out and then got at it! Take a look! Many thanks to the Pere Family, I hope you enjoy it!

Milan, London, New York and Marina Del Ray CA, USA…

I was very pleased to be approached by my Italian client again this time a special commission for his girlfriend, let’s hope she likes it! It was a montage of many places which was fun to piece fluidly together, also the first client commission in my new space – the light was good and I think I captured it well. Think Milan, New York, London and Marina Del Rey, California… all in one…

ALIVE and KICKING. Football/Tottenham/ Brad Friedl… Fun!

Always interested in a new challenge, having worked with Alive and Kicking before, they approached me and said ‘Lucinda, fancy painting on a football?’ I figured I’d play ball…

Alive & Kicking is an African social enterprise that manufactures sports balls; helping children exercise their right to play, creating ethical employment for African communities, and improving the health and quality of life of disadvantaged young people. Brad Friedl, of Tottenham Spur very kindly gave up some time for Alive and Kicking too, so with my expert painter and decorator skills I went along to help and painted his hands for hand prints, see pictures below! This Ball and the one that I have painted – with Chelsea supporters, you know to mix it up…  will be in the ICAP charity auction, so let’s hope it makes some Dollar!

Hattie…

It’s been a while since I posted any of the ‘face a day/ week’ sketches I have been doing… but thought I’d post this of my cousin, as she so very kindly put me up in Manchester/ let me tag along to her birthday celebrations and shared her friends with me at the Gig I went to… Very kind, (can’t say she had much choice in the matter… but hey what are family for if only to get free stuff :P).

 

Many thanks again… It’t just such a shame you had to duck out so early on in the evening? hmmm peaked a little early did we Hatbat?X

Take a look…
