Commissions can be stressful.
They're an exercise in communication, patience and skill. I always want the client to be happy and input their vision into the painting. There's a fine line between doing a good piece of work and spending too much time on one project.
My commission of Coco and Teddy is going well. I've spent too much time on the background but I couldn't resist it. I was drawn to the colorful quilt as a backdrop against the white dogs.
So here they are Coco and Teddy a Work in Progress.
I used a lot of masking fluid on the dogs. I'm not sure that it's entirely necessary. When painting the quilt, the masking fluid caused more problems then it solved.
