Artwork Story: Summer Glow Commission

Here is a recent commission that Victoria worked on for a family friend. She wanted a painting depicting a beautiful beach sunrise in a tropical place like Florida where we are located. She selected a free photograph on Pexels as we previously described on our blog entry regarding finding free photographs for commission.

Initial drawing with pencil and acrylic paint starting to see the horizon and ocean.

Horizon with more details on the clouds.

We have decided to call it ‘Summer Glow’ in the store shop to provide more of an idea of what the painting is about. What do you think? Let us know.

Almost finished! Palm trees and small amount of land painted with correction of sun’s reflection.
Final product after photograph added to computer photo editing program. Colors are more vibrant. A printed copy will look like this final picture. Since we use watercolor paper for the art prints, the brush strokes will be more vivid than in a computer monitor.
