This is the rug that she was looking to match. I studied the rug, then I turned it and enlarged it so that I could see the colors and the variations better.
I came up with a color palette that I felt matched the rug pretty well. The outside most edges are a light sand color, then the next variation moving inwards is a deeper sand or more taupe color, then there is a bit of a brownish-orange and the red, with a purplish red in the very middle.
I put the colors onto a white sheet of paper and photographed it to send to her, as well as making a picture with the rug and the palette together.
So today, I spent the time painting two 12*12 stretched canvases in her colors and themes.
All in all it was a fun day and something I don't get to do all that much, but hopefully, now that you all know that I am willing and able to do custom orders, I will be doing more of them!!
