This commission work was a collaboration between the client and the artist. The client selected one of my painting and from there asked me to created a similar artwork but different size. The custom size canvas had to have a custom frame . With the client we chose the shine of the painting, matte white background and shiny satin black marks for a perfect striking contrast. Then the client suggested a bit more gold leaf, so I added some in the perfect spot, but then I felt the black itself needed to be tweaked to respect the balance. It is a whole, and very often you will end up changing more that just a spot..
Here is a picture of the result before shipping.
