well seems like the commissioner has some reservations about the central figure (which is supposed to represent himself) and I cant say I blame him... It was a bit skewed to fit!
So he suggested simply putting his black and white photo into the painting.
and yes thats possible from the scan for a print but what to do with the painting?
I suggested painting in the photo, suitably colorised and then scan and give him the option of the real photo. All good and lucky I chose paints for this one as a repaint of one area isnt too hard.
This is a rough montage of what is now required.
Similar but much better! The angle of the RH arm is more aligned with the tree and the chap in the background. No worries, the commissioner is always right and its an iterative process.
