Great day today - did the photoshoot for the next commission, a semi-nude pencil drawing of a very beautiful young Spanish lady and got a wonderful phonecall from the client who commissioned the posthumous oil of man with sunglasses. I had never spoken to her before as the commission was given to me via a previous client of mine (the power of word of mouth). She was quite literally over the moon after she seeing the painting for the first time this morning, saying she couldn't believe how much like him the portrait was. She said she has already shown it to Spanish friends who might commission me to paint their daughter.
