Sometimes my clients will want a painting of their homes, or someone else's home to give as a housewarming gift. When I took pictures of this house to make the painting, it was still under construction. There was no: driveway, grass, flowers, fountain, or tree in the back. I worked with the interior designer to put in what the homeowner was going to do after move in, so that the gifter could give a more accurate representation to the giftee.
Sometimes your job includes filling in the blanks!
