Recent Commission's

Posted by Julia Ogden on

I have been really lucky during lockdown to have a couple of commissions to paint. It meant when the world seemed a bit bonkers I could find sanctuary in my painting. The first which I was finishing really at the beginning of lockdown was the client's house and view across the fields. They wanted a big sky, which suited me perfectly!
