This is the CD cover I designed for “Mark & the clouds” debut album.
Mark and The Clouds is a London based band playing a blend of timeless, catchy and powerful pop. Evolving from Instant Flight, a band so cool they persuaded the legendary Arthur Brown to sing on their debut album, Colours & Lights, Mark & The Clouds is fronted by vocalist and songwriter Marco Magnani.
Oil Paintings Commissions
” Gideau ” Oil on Canvas
This painting was commissioned for a birthday present. The customer asked me to change the background, he wanted a mountain scenery. He was really pleased with the final results!
” I would urge anyone to use Raffaella to paint a picture of their pet. She is a gifted artist who exactly captured the essence of our family dog even though she was only working from a photograph. Her portrait, painted as a surprise for my wife’s birthday, was a massive hit and now hangs in pride of place in my wife’s office at home and will always be a great memento of a much-loved pet.”
Mark Dowdney, London
” Minnie “ Oil on Canvas
This is a painting of a Shih Tzu dog, the customer asked me if I could change the background in order not to see the armrest of the sofa at the back, so I just painted the flowers motives all the way.
” A wonderful representation of my favourite dog.”
Angela Butt, London
” My Dog “ Oil on Canvas
This is a painting of my own dog, a beautiful German shepherd named Maya, she is my loyal companion! This was my first of a series of dog paintings..owning a dog gave me lots of new inspirations!
This painting was sold to a collector in China.
” Archimedes “ Oil on Canvas
This is a painting of French Bulldog, I love his expression, the customer was really pleased with it considering the photograph was really small and not too clear, I still managed to catch the essence of his character.
” French Bulldogs are very difficult to paint as they all look the same. I am absolutely thrilled Raffaella has caught all his features. Fantastic artist. Thank you, Pam.”
Pam Ibrahima, London
” Frank’s Dad “ Oil on Canvas
This portrait was commissioned for a special occasion, an anniversary gift from the son of the man on the portrait. Working from a small picture I managed to create a unique painting, with a peaceful atmosphere, adding some expressionistic elements.
