“Avalon Beach Patrol No. 46”
Acrylic on canvas, 11×14
©Robert Delaney, 2016 | SOLD (commission)
This painting was done as a commission for a friend – my first commission ever! That made it both exciting and stressful of course. But I told him I’d give it a try and that he’d be under no obligation to buy it if it didn’t come out good. But in the end I was very happy with the result, and so was the customer. The last thing I did on this painting was the small print on the side of the boat. It took me something like four attempt to get it right – I had to keep painting it over in white and trying again.
