Re: Golden retrieiver/ wip Finished!

((E-J)) I am sorry about all this but it is a beautiful painting...too bad the client doesn't see it that way.
Don't chuck it though...put it aside and maybe later you can frame it and some other golden lover will love it....ot maybe you'll feel like playing with it some more. But now it is obviously time to set it aside...and move on!
And never view time painting as wasted time...you always learn and grown by working like this.
Hang in there...you've done a great job!

Sandy

Re: Golden retrieiver/ wip Finished!

So sorry E-J, that you could not please your client. It was such a lovely painting. You have put so much time and effort in. Must have been very frustrating. Just leave it behind you and get ready for christmas.
Merry Christmas!

I'll bring a rum cake. I know you don't want any more discussion but all I have to say about your beautiful painting is it's the client's loss!

Re: Golden retrieiver/ wip Finished!

An update on this one: my client's asked whether I'll consider giving the portrait another go, and has offered to pay me something towards my time and materials so far.

It feels good to have another chance to make it work, so I will be making a start on painting #2 in the New Year!

Re: Golden retrieiver/ wip Finished!

This is a good thing. I think if you use the right colors from the start you will not have any problem. You already have the composition done. I just finished commission and my client didn't like the hair.I did the hair exactly the way it was in the photo with highlights. My client said it looks to her like I gave her gray hair. She wanted me to change it to blonde because she was blonde long time ago - this is not what I see in the photo, but client is always right so now she is blonde - hope she will like it. I am very glad I don't take it personally - just do what they want. I am not attached emotionally to commissions work. With my work is a different story.
Good luck - I am glad you are going to do it.

Re: Golden retrieiver/ wip Finished!

Best of luck with painting No. 2, (not that you need luck as your paintings are beautiful anyway), but please do not get yourself too stressed out this time.

Re: Golden retrieiver/ wip Finished!

I've had too busy of a work schedule as usual to be here at all but I'm off today and see that the old golden saga continues! I'm happy to hear that you will have a second chance to paint this dog's portrait. You'll probably be less frustrated this time around since you already know where you're going with this.

Best of luck and happy holidays!
