Lodore Falls Hotel Watercolour Commission

This is the second commission I'd received to paint the beautiful view of Lodore Falls Hotel in the Lake District. The customer had been looking for a painting of her wedding venue and had seen my previous commission on Instagram.

It was the first time that I'd produced a second painting of the same view, so the pressure was on!

These are just the snaps I took on my phone camera to show the progress to the customer. She wanted the same view as I'd done before but as it was a completely new painting, it would still be unique to her.

I always feel like a painting really comes to life when the details are added. I almost always add the windows onto buildings last.

This particular commission was the 8x6 on a 10x8 card which comes in an envelope so it's ideal for a wedding anniversary or special birthday. The recipient can have it mounted and framed if they like. It's especially good for a first wedding anniversary as that is paper!

When the customer received it, she emailed me to say "Me and my husband are over the moon with it. Thank you so much."
