While my bricks and mortar shop is closed and my online shop hasn’t attracted custom presently I have kept busy the last two and a half weeks with commission work. Today I started my fifth Valentine commission, which came in last night.
My hat commission was always going to go on hold if valentines pieces came in, so the hat sits at the side of the studio for the moment alongside the paper design.
I have gone from drawing lots of A6 studies to work for clients as I can not sit and draw while out as against the current guidance when out exercising and trying to keep to that.
I still take photographs when out on my daily exercise walk and building a record of changes in the local cliffs and beaches so I have plenty of source material for other work in the future.
I will start soon sharing some technique posts as well with the media that I use, all self taught as my practice has developed since June 2015.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-4679-60fb45bba7a5a' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=4679&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-4679-60fb45bba7a5a' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-4679-60fb45bba7a5a'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
