Commission a portrait

Pete in the garden, oil on canvas 52cm x 42cm


I’m happy to paint from life or photographs but in most cases I tend to work with a mixture of both. Initially I would start a commission with a two to three hour sitting in my studio which would enable me
to get to know the person, and give me a good idea of their skin tone, eye colour etc.

The next stage would be to meet the client in their own surroundings and take numerous photographs for use as reference to work from on the final painting.

Or alternatively I can create a looser, more impressionistic portrait over a four hour sitting.

I’m now also offering portraits drawn and painted on an i-pad and printed on high quality textured or smooth fine art paper.

All commissions are priced individually and will depend on the size, subject and details such as the location and setting.
