Graham and Paul at March Golf course

Here is a commission I just finished. It was for Paul (on the right) who wanted to give this painting for Graham's birthday (on the left). It was done from photographs. They play golf quite often together so it was a good way to have a usual scene with both of them. I'm not used to this type of subject but Paul was very happy with it. Let's hope Graham will be too...
Happy Easter everybody!

  1. Congratulations on a great painting. Im glad Paul was pleased with it. commissions are great especially when you have good people to work with. You do hear horror stories about people who can not be pleased. You put together a very natural composition and you really drew the figures well. Hope this leads to more commissions! Happy Easter.

  2. Well done Val, very nice and different from your usual style :)

  3. Thanks Douglas. Commissions are tricky ones indeed and much more challenging than the painting you would do for yourself. I'm working on a other one for the moment which is even a bigger challenge so I'll post it when ready.

  4. I just found your blog and and I'm definitely a follower.Thank you for sharing the photos, it is really interesting to compare it with the painting.
