I'm working with a client to create a nice long painting to fit in a specific spot in her family room. We're going for stylized garden which will bring the outdoors into the inside living space. She has the nicest garden and yard, so I have a lot to work with for inspiration. The initial sketch focused on the garden in the foreground with the fence-line in the background. As I sketched it in colored pencils, I decided that it needed an entry point to come into the painting, so I placed the walkway in there and an opening in the front for the eye to enter the painting. I'll keep you posted on the painting's progress.
