CLIENTS LOVE IT !!!!!!

WELL TWO HAPPY CUSTOMERS YAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!

Boy I can't tell you how my tummy was turning as I drove to their place to show them their painting... I knew they would love the 2d part but it was the background colour that I wasn't sure on ... well thats not true I loved the colour but... when you are painting for others they have their own ideas of what they want....

It's a pain with photos as I spend hours upon hours working on shading... so when you look at my work from different angles you should see different colours.... but you wont see that on the computer SORRY !!

They loved all the colours and were blown away at how the background colours seemed to change on different angles !!!

SO NOW I CAN BREATH EASY AS I DID WHAT I SET OUT TO DO


FILL THEIR EXPECTATIONS !!!!!! YAAAAAAA NOW ONTO THE NEXT ONE

When the Painting is in its place I will take a pickie and post it here.

Boy am I busy.... have a wee butterfly one to do for a xmas commission and trying to finish my Sisters xmas pressie she wants a african scene ..... I'll take a picture of what I have done so far... but I really want to put some 2d on it so I think I will do a canopy Tree.... talk soon with some photos...
