I use Paypal for payments, but invoice using billbooks.com, which I don't think can be beaten as an invoicing app for both functionality and price.
If you're looking for more than invoicing then there are others that some may recommend that are full blown accounting systems, but that wasn't what I needed and after using/testing literally dozens, this stood out by far.

Sketch lightly with pencil first, then paint over. Seen a few artists do this and seems to work well (and something I'd like to try myself one day). You could even start combining both pencil work and acrylic to have a kind of mixed media type outcome.

Classic troll, utilising the anonymity of the internet to bash out things on their keyboard that they'd never have the guts to say to someone's face. Guess we should stop feeding it...
See @CARLYM, it could be worse, you could be working for @TANGERINE!

::As experienced as I may be I still learn something new most weeks::
This. Who would want to be working in some area where you were not constantly learning new stuff?!?!
Make sure you get photos once it's all done @BJARNI and post them up.

@TANGERINE - @SCOTTY and @DAVE have definitely provided some good information @TANGERINE - how do we know you live and work full-time in australia in a design position?
@tangerine some of what you've said is not true either
- You're joking right? You do realise having short stints catches up with you.
I've had short stints at work before, the design industry is not a complete corporate environment, some agencies actually respect that you've left jobs that didn't fit...
Ps. I haven't had any negative repercussions from short stints
- Accept that this is what commercial graphic design is.
Not everywhere is like this @TANGERINE ...
If I'm honest @TANGERINE you just sound like a massively disgruntled designer who's unhappy with their job and taking it out on others!

That's true @Dave and @Trex but if they ask for 'PDF under 5mb' or whatever, I always wonder - if you send them a link are you not ticking the 'able to follow instructions' box?! I personally wouldn't care either way.
I caved in to this recently and made a mini portfolio as a PDF for a job I thought I wanted.

@Dave - I wondered that too, but I felt black could be appropriate given its luxury accomodation. Having said that, a velvety or more 'lush' black, rather than a hard and flat black might convey that idea better. @ Wenmac - have a look at how black is used in luxury brands (this link has some examples: http://ianvadas.com/index/). A good trick is often to dial the colour back just slightly so it's still strong, but a bit more refined.
