A few weeks ago I embarked on a commission for a corporate client based in Scotland, the castle that I painted ‘Carlowrie Castle’ will hold events for all walks of life so the client asked me to make sure it was a cracker…The painting will hang pride of place above the fire place in the main hall so…I did my best!
I went back to make a mess in my parents house in Warwickshire (convenient) and use the space whilst they were away, in conjunction with sunshine and a glass of wine I had a good 2 days painting in order to create this private commission.
As an add on for clients, I can produce a stop motion video (for those of you who don’t know, basically you attach what can be best described as a remote to the camera and it takes a photo every -in this case- 15 seconds… which are then compiled together to condense down many hours of painting to a 3 minute video). The video usually adds another dimension to the project and in this case a piece of marketing material for the castle. Unfortunately Youtube has cut some of the angles off or out… so the link below is a fair but no quite as good as the original version… but it gives you a feel for the animation!
