I’ve been working on this 7 foot piece for over 2 months and have been enjoying almost all of the process. I’m still learning about communication/negotiations with a client through a consultant. It’s tricky. Part of the problem has stemmed from my neanderthal photography skills. I sent a requested “halfway done” image several weeks ago naively thinking that the purpose was to simply show that I’m truly working hard on this and progress is happening. The image was way off in color and the lighting reflected off the satiny silk in a way that made the piece look garish orange and purple. The consultant called and was very concerned…
After finally getting some closer to real color images to her, I think all is well again.
Here’s a closer look at the least finished area:
She had some really good suggestions of how to quietly work in a bit more of the client’s suggested colors and I like the results. These image have some peach and lemon silk pinned on to show where they will eventually live. There are also a few pieces of green pinned for try outs but they did not make the final cut.
