I got commissioned to do the House of Virgin Mary.
I need some suggestions on how to handle the background (above the house). When I tried painting the branches it looked spooky, flat and crowded.
How do I emulate distant tree tops without going too spooky or weird?
Other Commission Requests:
- 14" x 18"
- Must be "Rustic"
- Must have Rosemary in the front planter
- Must have a grapevine growing on the wall
- Would like it to "feel" like it was when Mary lived there
My rough oil sketch that got approved:
