Portrait Commissions

I’ve been working on these commissions since the end of January (off and on) and am finally seeing them come together.  I’m finding that I need to “play” in between times – doodle Cutie-Pies, start my own projects, and deal with the day-to-day stuff we all have to deal with…  I thought this would be a good time to show where I am with the portraits of Danica and Teo.  Both are very near completion and I met with Rachel, their grandmother,  weekend before last and she was happy with their progress at that stage.  I’ve done a lot of work on Danica since then (a LOT), and she’s coming along nicely I think.  It’s hard, I’m finding out, to get portraits right, when there are expectations from the client, even when you know you can handle them.    Here are Danica and Teo (mostly done):

WIP - Lorraine Young - "Danica" - commissioned portrait - pastels on sanded pastel paper - 9"x12"

WIP – Lorraine Young – “Danica” – commissioned portrait – pastels on sanded pastel paper – 9″x

    So hard to “make them right” when you can see the photo and know that reputation and future work may be dependent on the customer being delighted.
