Commission FAQ's

I will need a CLEAR, photograph(s) or better still, access to be able to take my own (plus sketches if possible) in situ.

If you use another person's photograph, you MUST get permission to use it as reference for a painting.

Things to consider:-

1. The sort of background you'd like (a plain colour or a scene)

2. Will the background complement where the artwork will hang?

3. What size and shape you'd like (square canvas or rectangle (portrait or landscape)).

Once we have these basics established, I will prepare an underpainting. I will email the painting to you to double check you are happy with the initial layout. You have the option to alter this once before colour will be added. 

Then, during the painting process, I will share (by email) progress of the work. 

As I work with oil paints, the artwork will need time to dry.

Please bear in mind if I'm working on other commissions, there may be a wait (approx 2-6 weeks).

Please book early for special occasions such as Christmas. Price will be dependent on the size of artwork.
