Honestly, I've enjoyed every single commission I've had a chance to create so far, but the subject of this particular painting was something that I can imagine myself painting just for the fun of it.

The Birth of a Will – Commission Progress

Before Christmas I received a commission of an A1 sized watercolor painting. The client wanted to have a front view of the head of a stag and a transformation effect I often use on my paintings, meaning that the living creatures smoothly transfor into water, plants or other elements.
