Please contact me if you are considering purchasing or commissioning a painting.
Every painting is important, and my priority is customer satisfaction.
Ideally I like to meet the person and to get to know them. This helps me to understand the subject, their personality, their requirements and preferences. This first meeting allows me to produce sketches and take photographs, which are used as reference material to produce the completed portrait. The portrait's creation is a shared journey of discovery which can become a talking point for a lifetime.
Alternatively, I can paint portraits from your own, good quality, photographs. If possible, I would also like to meet the person whom I will be painting, for the reasons outlined above.
Please contact me for your portrait and landscape commissions.
I work from good quality photos, usually taken from several angles. Ideally the photos will have a single dominant light source which provide a good tonal range of lights and darker shadows.
Pricing is determined by the size required. As an example:-
An unframed individual portrait (Oil on board 10”x12”) would cost £220 in monochrome or £300 in colour. A painting of twice the size would cost double the price.
Prices exclude postage and packing; and any additional import tariffs and customs taxes charged by some countries.
Please note that our agreed timeframe will include both the painting time and the drying time.
