I recieved a request to create a Bob Marley piece from a couple that happened to see one of my paintings hanging at Grinner's Daquiri bar in San Angelo, TX. Hint: hanging your art work in local places isn't always to sell your work, if some one can see your talent they will envision there own personalized painting and make a request; always include contact info on all your labels. So in this case we met at my gallery and discussed color, size, time frame, and photograph I would work from.
They requested that I stick to a loose style but stay close to Earth tones since their home has similar colors. I chose the following colors for the background since the complimentary colors and other primary colors will give some good highlights and focus.
