Lynsey Jean Henderson studio was commissioned to create a canvas painting for a special anniversary gift. The client expressed the key elements he wished to be included in the painting for his wife and together we began the design process. A colour consultation appointment was then held in the room the final painting would be hung in so that appropriate colours were selected for the piece and the painting would compliment the room setting. During the design stage four sketches and compositions were created for the client to choose from before starting work on the final canvas. This particular painting was painted on a natural linen canvas which added to the texture and naturalistic feel of the subject matter.
