How it works
Here's how a commission works.
Together we agree on the subject, style, price and a time period for the painting, I will usually work from a photo which you supply (you can send me your photos by email).
I may work straight from the photo, or I might compose a sketch first to improve the composition, depending on the subject.
On occasion and if necessary I can visit your home either to make a sketch, take some photos or set up a still life with your favourite objects, but if we can do these things by email it often makes it easier.
I take a reservation fee of 50% of the price when I take on the commission, the remainder to be paid on completion.
Please contact me if you would like a no obligation chat about commissioning a painting.
The price depends on the size of the painting and the complexity of the subject, so these prices are just a guide to let you know that an original commissioned painting of your favourite subject won't cost the earth!.
Acrylics or oils can be painted onto board (which will need a frame) or onto a stretched canvas which you can decide to frame or just hang on the wall as it is.
The choice is yours.
