A commission story for you today. The client liked a previous LeMakoo painting and wanted something similar to an exact size to cover a panel near their front door, exactly 120x90cm.
The painting they liked was one I did years ago of Valletta, featuring some pretty strong colours with a very intense sky.
You can find it here, http://www.lemakoo.com/maltese-landscapes-sold.html ,fifth from the bottom.
Now lots of people say, well I don’t want a copy of another painting. But this is not what I do, I just use the basic colours and layout of the previous painting and create an entirely new one. Two reasons for this. To actually recreate a painting exactly, stroke by stroke would take 100’s of hours of tedious, boring work, and the end result would lack spontaneity. It is quicker and infinitely more enjoyable to create, than to copy.
Another new painting for you today, just finished is a very moody Red Valletta.
100x70cm oil on canvas. See
For bigger picture, price etc.
And here’s another picture of them both together to give you an idea of size
