I'm an artist specialising in portrait and animal paintings. To commission a drawing or painting is easy...
I work from photographs please contact me to discuss your requirements without any obligation. Send me your photos and I will advise the medium I feel will be best and the size of the finished artwork. Of course, you can choose your own medium if you wish but if you don't have a preference I will suggest the best options.
At this stage you are under no obligation. Once we have discussed, and you are happy to continue, the process will commence. Normally a commission will be finished in 2 - 3 weeks. I will advise on the time-scale before we start.
So, please contact me for a friendly chat. Send me photos of the subject(s) so I can see what you need.(I do need good quality photos so I can see as much detail as possible). No payment is required at this stage.
The commission only starts when we agree on what is to be done and you're happy to commence. All I ask is a 20% deposit to start and then you will be updated on the progress all the way through.
This is a portrait I did of the legendary Rolling Stone Keith Richards.
It's probably not the most flattering portrait of him but I liked it because it reflects his personality so much.
The fact that even with a camera pointed at him didn't make him want to strike a pose. The open shirt (all be it a very nice tailored shirt). The ruffled hair. And the Rock n Roll lifestyle etched on his face.
