Portrait Commissions

A commissioned portrait is a personal and unique gift and hopefully an enjoyable experience to be remembered.  If you are unsure which style or medium you would like or have any other questions simply get in touch with me to start the ball rolling and I will guide you through the process.

An artist with over 30 years experience I work with you to create bespoke, original artworks. As pets and children rarely stay still long enough, I work from good quality photographs and prefer (if possible and you are local to me)  to take the photos my self.  I believe this gives me an insight into the character and personality of the subject which can be an invaluable aid when creating the portrait.

If time is not an issue a series of two hour sittings can be arranged where I will sketch directly from life, supplemented with photographs so that work can continue in your absence.

If using your own photographs please read – Tips on taking a great photo 

Once the commission has been placed I ask for a £50 deposit which will secure your quote and place in my work schedule. This deposit will, of course, be deducted from the total cost.

It can take four to six weeks to complete a watercolour commission, for other mediums, timescales will be quoted when you place the commission.   Christmas is always a popular time and incredibly busy, I am often booked up months in advance so please do bear this in mind when placing your commission as I wouldn’t want you to be disappointed.

If you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to call   07943 230584
