How I Approach Commissions, Part 2

I’ve been working on this commission and it is coming along very well – it’s reached a point where the piece now has a life of it’s own, and I am loving how the composition is coming together.

Getting here, however, did not happen overnight – it was a process of building up the surface, subtracting from it, and then building it up again. In short, I had to lose myself in the piece before it reached a stage I could be happy with.

Watch the video and let me know what you think. I would love to hear your thoughts on commissions, and your creative process in general!

In gratitude, Nicholas
