The grand prize winner, Heidijoy Gill chose the personalized painting option. She wanted a painting of her cat. She provided several reference images that I could use to create the painting. I used this one:
I was live while painting the kitty, it took 3 sittings to do and I feel like it came out pretty good. When I showed her the painting, she was thrilled. I cannot wait till she receives the painting and is able to see it in person. I added my favorite gold paint to his eyes so its shimmery. That is hard to capture in a picture.
You can find the live videos on my facebook page, but I did do an edited, sped up version of the video, which you can see there here:
My client wanted a painting of his three Mastiffs and Pike's Peak in the background. He provided several reference images for me to use, these three were the ones I chose.
I was really nervous about doing this painting because it was three dogs and they were facing different ways, which meant the proportions and shadow were really going to matter. The reference images of the dogs had a lot of shadowing on the face, which made seeing the eyes and lines of the face hard. But I feel like I did a great job capturing them and giving enough highlights and shadow to show the body lines.
Here is the progression video, Enjoy!

I was commissioned to paint a large painting (on a 18x24 Stretched Canvas) with lots of stuff going on. This painting took me 7 hours to complete, not including the sealant or wall hook installation.
The client wanted a Fenix, two Doves in a tree, a unicorn, one white peacock and one colorful peacock, two swans, a waterfall, a pegasus, a wolf, two hummingbirds and flowers.
She had requested I try to make it like the sketch she provided, so I did just that.
I love all of the elements individually. I tried to give them as much detail as possible, even with their small size.
For this painting, I decided to leave off the progression pictures because there are about 40 of them. So I am going to only share the progression video because I feel the captures the progression better than 40 pictures. Enjoy the video!
This was a lot of fun to paint and really tested my skills. I learned a lot more while doing it and look forward to more commissioned paintings in the future.
