A friend commissioned me to paint her daughter’s adorable first home, as a gift and celebration of this milestone. I waited for a while so they could send me some photos of full trees and flowers blooming around the house – Vermont’s spring comes quite a bit later than it does here!
I started with a pencil sketch. My client also sent photos of her daughter’s cat, so I pencilled him in on the front porch.
After some more recent photos were sent I was able to add newly-planted flowers to the color sketch.
And after approval from my client I transferred the drawing to illustration board and painted it using a combination of prisma pencils and acrylic paint washes.
