Shizzy at her front door

Acrylic on Acrylic Board (circa A4) (Unframed)

As I wrote earlier Shizzy is a delightful Chinese teacher who for almost two years has lodged next door. A few weeks ago I painted her portrait as an acrylic sketch, and as a result of that she has asked me to paint a commission piece for her.

As a memento to take back to China she wanted a painting of the front of the house, with her in the doorway. She very much wanted it with the summer roses in bloom.

She gave me two photographs, one winter view with her standing in the doorway, and a summer view with summer foliage, but without her.

I used photoshop to merge the images, and from the resulting image drafted the painting.

Acrylic on Acrylic Board (circa A3) (Unframed)

I thought it about time that from time to time, I moved away from, my ‘picture postcard’ images and tried to paint things that were more everyday. What in my mind I think of as ‘conversational pieces’. That is images that might be the sort of thing that I might see in my daily moving around. Figures in particular, not posed for a commission image, but just as they are, in situ.
