Commissioning your own painting is easy...

Think about where the painting will go. If it's in your house or office, does it need to fit in a particular space or colour scheme? If it's a gift for someone else, what type of art do they have on the walls already?

Consider the subject - Children, holiday scenes, local views and pets are popular subjects. I can paint from your photos or take some more. Remember: a painting is only as good as the reference. If you are looking for a recognisable portrait or scene, you need a good quality photo! After emailing me the photos, I will let you know if they are of suitable quality, suggest what to include or leave out and the size and quote a price. We can do this by email, phone or face to face, depending on the painting. When this has been agreed in writing (normally by email), I will then go ahead with the painting.


The price - This depends on the complexity of the picture as well as the size, so increasing the number of people or special features will increase the price. The following prices are a guideline only. Please contact me to discuss your individual requirements.
