A New First

A week ago I was offered my first commercial commission by a graphic designer some thousand kilometres away who found me via facebook and my website. My commission was to paint a watercolour of his specific vision of a dandelion for a clients company branding. I painted three versions which were all liked but in the end the designer chose elements from all three to form one flower that met his brief.  I have seen the final presentation (but not at liberty to share at this stage) and felt so pleased at how my washes and brushstrokes were used in this way. The original paintings were not required and are mine to use if I wish as only high resolution files were needed.

  10. What a great opportunity. I had a similar request from a design agency who wanted me to produce some special effects in watercolour...in the end they decided they would create it digitally but I did get paid for what I did so win win!!
