The job I almost had but thank goodness I didn't
The art director called me to do the paintings for this commercial. He said they needed a landscape painter to do paintings that would appear in a Subaru commercial about a guy who used his Subaru to travel to remote locations to sketch. The paintings would be meant to capture the beauty of each location.
As often happens in TV they pulled out at the last minute saying there was a story change and they were changing the tone of the artwork they wanted to use.
I love how the commercial turned out and I'm so glad my work was deemed inappropriate for it :)
You can see my landscape sketching blog here and the whole enchilada here. They are mostly 30 minute sketchbook studies with the occasional larger work.
