Oil on canvas.
Holkham, Norfolk coastline.
The client had just returned from a holiday along the Norfolk coast at Holkham. They had viewed a number of paintings I had on show in an exhibition that depicted scenes of the area, - but unfortunately, they were either the wrong format, colour or style which wouldn’t sit comfortably in their chosen location of a bedroom in their home. Over a number of weeks, we worked together to gather the story with their travel pictures that reflected their memories into one image. The final oil painting depicted a moment in time when a storm was brewing on the horizon and a brisk walk was required back to the hotel before they got both got soaked and the heavens opened!
' We’re delighted with the finished picture. Laura’s professional manner made the process easy and enjoyable.’ Kathy & Paul. Hertfordshire.
Oil Painting: A Special Moment
The client wanted a surprise present for his wife and family to celebrate a family event. Painted in a classical style to suit the clients' decor, the painting took 6 weeks to complete.
The client visited my studio on a number of occasions to view work in progress, from pencil sketch to the final piece. He was delighted with the final piece, excited about the final unveiling during a family dinner later that week.
Oil Paintings: Quadriptych Scapes
Together we worked to create a clear vision for the type of paintings my client required after purchasing one of my paintings at a previous exhibition.
With a love of sharp colour contrasts and dramatic land and seascapes, the collection captured atmospheric seasonal changes representing a time of day conveyed through cloud formations.
This collection will be displayed together as a quadriptych in their formal dinning room at home.
Oil Painting: The Storm
The client wanted to commission a special painting of a moment in time when she and her husband moved to the Essex coast. That very same week there was a dramatic storm and the seafront was awash with big, heavy waves crushing into the promenade wall. It was a surprise present for a 'very special' birthday, a big family celebration.
Her husband was overjoyed with his painting. It now hangs in pride of place, in the lounge, above their fireplace.
Pen & Ink: New Pup
The client had always had a love of her Collies. She wanted a drawing that captured the vitality and youth of her new beloved member of the family. A small black and white line drawing with added areas of colour tints fitted the brief. Mounted into a modern white wooden frame.- One happy dog owner!
