Commissioning a portrait
I work mainly in oils but also specialise in pencil drawings. I can be commissioned to paint or sketch a single subject or a group.
Every client and commission are very unique. Quotes are tailored to fit every individual request. Scale, background detail and the amount of additional content etc. These are all factors that are taken into account when providing a quote.
All I require is a high resolution photo and a 25% deposit to secure your booking. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss commissioning a piece of artwork.
Prices are based on a single subject head and shoulders with a plain background. Other sizes are available and subjects can be added for £300 per subject. Each painting is painted using high quality materials with precision and skill.

1. Painting from a photo provided by the client.
The first option is to work from photographs provided by you. The photographs need to be high quality, this means that they need to be be high resolution, sharp images with good lighting (not using flash).
2. Painting from my own photographs + reference drawings.
The second option is for me to take the photographs myself and to gather some reference sketches. This allows me to meet the sitter and get the best possible images to work from.
