I love doing custom painting. Working to bring someone's vision into reality is always exciting. Yesterday I received a new commission from a client who lives in Italy. In some cases I work with Benjamin Moore color swatches, but with this piece I made a palette with Photoshop for them to review using the Liquitex manufactures and Winsor Newton swatches. When a collector chooses their colors with a visual experience, it really brings the project to a tangible, personal level. They too are involved in the creative process. It can be a lot of fun. Here is the palette that I presented to them. They decided to go with all of the colors except the Rennaissance Gold. This is the start of something good.
