I was commissioned to paint a picture of Awbridge Church in Hampshire as a surprise anniversary gift. It was lovely to be involved with such a great occasion.
I was so pleased when Isabel accepted the commission to paint Awbridge Church for me. It is a very special place for our family and I wanted the painting to be a surprise for my husband. Isabel visited the church several times to take photos at various angles and in different lights, we discussed which would produce the best painting for me. She had a dead line date – our anniversary – and ensured that the painting was finished on time and received in secret! We are delighted with result; the church, light, colours and shadows are perfect, all the smallest details were included down to the lichen on the roof. It has been an interesting project and feels very exciting to have commissioned and to now own a lovely original painting. Thank you Isabel.
