Commission Artworks

COMMISSION ARTWORKS – Portraits based on photographs
For more Information and Orders use contact form.

THE PROCESS
I work predominantly in oils portraits and use a single photograph based on one or more photographs of the sitter. It could be a photograph taken by others since the quality and light are good (this is vital).
There are notable exceptions where I can accept photographs of professional standard when it is a wedding photo from many years ago or a posthumous portrait.

PORTRAIT OF ADULTS 
Prices start from £650 for oil head and shoulders of a single person, box canvas size 20”x16”.
£1,200 for oil head and shoulders for couples or wedding pictures, box canvas size 24”x18”.
Other sizes and full body portrait are available for extra cost.

PORTRAIT OF CHILDREN
Prices start from £650 for oil head and shoulders of the single child, box canvas size 20”x16”.
From £1,200 for oil head and shoulders of two or three children, box canvas size 24”x18”.
Other sizes, the quantity of children portraits or full body portraits are available for extra cost.

FAMILY PORTRAIT
These paintings are normally fairly large, but can be any size and price is dependent on the size, and the number of people and animals featured.
Price on application although, as a guide, a large-scale painting would be circa £ 3,500.

ANIMAL PORTRAIT
Prices start from £450 – head or full body, canvas size 20” x 16”.
Other sizes and quantity of animals are available for extra cost.

HOME PORTRAIT
Prices start from £450 – Painting of the perspective view of the house and grounds, canvas size 762mm x 610mm (30” x 24”).
This kind of composition can be made with imaginary background or what suits better.

CONTRACT AND PAYMENTS
Commission artworks are paid 70% on the order (non-refundable) and signed contract. During the process the Artist will keep the sitter posted about its progress, open to colour’s alterations and improvements. The final 30% is paid when the portrait is finished and got the sitter approval. Free shipping on delivery.

MEDIUM AND MATERIAL EMPLOYED
Professional canvas for use of oil painting, with a double impression of plaster in 100% pure cotton, stretched in a thick wooden frame (poster type). Imported material or UK material. Paints and professional thinners imported.
