art in homes

 

Welcome to my art in homes page. Here you will find different examples of both commissioned and purchased pieces in clients homes. I am very grateful for all the wonderful people I have met and worked with. Creating custom paintings and being able to contribute part of the proceeds to seagrass conservation is pretty amazing!

“We feel so lucky to have happened upon Nedret and her studio. Her easy -going way, amazing eye and beautiful paintings made us decide to commission a painting rather than buy something already created. We are thrilled that we did! From start to finish the process was easy, fun, and exciting! Nedret made multiple trips to our home to make sure we were entirely satisfied each step of the way; from studies, to mid-way check-ins – including modifications, to helping us install the final product. She has no ‘ego’; all she wants is to make sure we love our painting. We do!!”

Karen S., Andover, MA, 2017

 

the commissions process:

For me, the commission process is a fun collaboration between the clients and myself. I love the challenge of being able to transform my client’s ideas and vision into a tangible real life painting. It gives me great joy to create paintings that everyone is excited about!

Please contact me at nedret@nedretandre.com for brainstorming some ideas.

the process

1. the idea

Clients Doreen and Elliot start the process with an idea/image/ color of what they would like. Each collaboration is different. With “Elliot’s Shoreline” my clients had sample swatches and loved the small painting I had made below (on the left):

seagrass IMG_4846 (1)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. the sketches:

From both the image and color swatches I created small scale studies for the clients to choose from:

Cool hues, warm hues and tonal colors

Study2

Study3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The clients picked this study with tonal hues on the right

3. building, stretching and the beginnings & mid-way check in

 

Love to use my mitering saw to create what ever sized painting I want! Here I made an internal frame of 46″x 60″ and stretched canvas over it. After a couple of coats of primer and sanding, I got started on the painting.

Half way through the painting process I invite clients to the studio for feedback. Input from clients help ensure a painting that everyone is super excited about. We started off with colors swatches and a flat abstract image, we ended up with an abstracted city and a reflection.

“When I look at Blue Carbon. I immediately feel an emotional connection. I can’t quite explain it.. It transports me to the artistic under water world. It gives me a sense of gratitude and peace, and makes me feel really calm. It’s like I am going for a walk by the ocean on an uninhabited beach. Delightful and energizing.”

Pattern over Blue Commission, Oil on Canvas, 30″x 40″, Duxbury, MA 2013

“We enjoyed how fun Nedret made the commissioning process! She’s a great listener and was able to translate the mood, atmosphere and colors we wanted into a beautiful painting. She let us see the “work in progress” to make sure it was on track. We recommend her highly!”

Deborah C., MA, 2013

Oil on Panel

Peter’s Tuscany Commission, Oil on Wood Panel, 25″x55″ Enfield, London 2006

“The inspiration for the commission came from a trip to Italy to celebrate turning 30. I approached Nedret since I loved the colors she was using in her large scale landscapes. It was a pleasure working on the whole project. She understood exactly what I wanted for my Tuscany sunset themed art work and customized everything from building the wooden panel to the exact size, to the materials used and colours. 10 years on, it is now hanging on new walls in a new home  and I get as much pleasure from it now as I did when I first saw it when Nedret shipped it to me in London. The oil colours are as vibrant as ever; it transports me back to Italy and reminds me of the wonderful time I had there. Nedret was able to capture the warm feelings of a Tuscany sunset better than I could have imagined.”

Peter A., London, UK, 2006
