Completing this painting has been a process spread out over about a year. After an initial briefing and inspiration from Marnice, owner of BOUBOU B&B, this was the initial sketch I came up with:
With back-and -forth email conversation and more input form Marnice, it underwent some transformations. First, the composition was changed to put more emphasis on the birds:
Then, colour was added, and the bright colours definitely struck a chord:
Several other options were considered, but it was this composition which developed into the finished product, which will soon find a place on one of the walls of BOUBOU B&B.
Previous commissions done for BOUBOU B&B include:
|Call of the Boubou|
|Song of the Boubou (Set of Three)|
I happily undertake commissions.
