Ricardo e Cristiana, Óbidos 2017

So, I am most currently residing in Lisbon (GREAT city, super creative too); and was approached by two very special people to me; to do a commission of mutual friends of ours on their wedding day…

I have of recent created quite a few works centred around weddings – I think the personal nature of commissioning something, and my style lends itself to these special days –  and so was thrilled to do something, especially of two people I know too! I believe those who commissioned it and the the special couple themselves, were all thrilled with the outcome. 😉

Based on a photo from their wedding photography, taken in Óbidos, Portugal. May it bring you many years of joy, and may you have many happy years of matrimony! Enjoy Ricardo e Cristiana!

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 ;)!

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!

750 Park Avenue, Manhattan, New York City…

So I was approached by a lovely and interesting client, who I’ve worked with before to recreate where her husband grew up,  750 Park Avenue New York. She gave me the postcode and sent me to google maps so I created a composition drawing to get the right perspective – introduced the appropriate characters of the area -business men, cyclists, ladies with little dogs – and this combined with my numerous trips to New York for both work and pleasure, to quote my client meant that ‘I had captured exactly how it is over there!’. Have a butchers…

The Show. The Guards, Primrose Hill, Chelsea, Notting Hill Carnival and Covent Garden.

So last week I had a collaborative pop up show with Milly McCallum, and it went really well! I sold work and took private commissions, so I’m pleased as punch. The work is still available to be seen – 265 King’s Road along with other sorts of work too this week, if you are in the area pop in!

I had a lot of fun with this work as I played with folding the paper to create a 3d element, texture and therefore aura of lots of people, as I wanted these pieces to be based around figures, crowds and people. We have ‘Change of the Guards’, The Sunbathers on Primrose Hill’ ‘Notting Hill Carnival’ ‘Jose’s Boys – Stamford Bridge’ and ‘The Jugglers in Covent Garden’. They were then framed in really stylish box frames with conservation glass and so I was really pleased with the quality and finish to my babies! Take a look!

‘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!

Egyptian Tanoura Dancers….

Happy New Year to everyone, this was penultimate private commission of a fantastic 2013! Some very lovely clients from Egypt asked me to recreate imagery of the infamous ‘Tanoura dancers’ which I think was a great success as my style lends itself to imagery full of energy and movement… so take a look!
