How to commission a portrait

Firstly we will discuss your commission and how you want it to look, traditional, casual, dramatic or any other style.


Preferabally I would do some little sketches to get skin tones and eye colours correct, then take many photographs to use as resourse material, I know this isn't possible in most cases because of the distance people are from my studio, so I will work from high quality resolution photographs.


I will give you a fixed price, that will not change at any part of the commission. (please check on approx prices by clicking on the above link)


20% non returnable deposit is paid with the balance on completion.


The portrait would usually take between 2 and 4 months to complete.


If requested I will send you images of the commission at its various stages of completion.


There can not be any alterations to the painting once it has been started.


We check you are delighted with the result.


The artist will advise on framing.


The finished painting is sent to you by special art courier.



Framing and Delivery costs are additional.
