The things to think about when commissioning a painting are as follows:

Who and what is to be in the portrait. This could be a family portrait, it could include pets, or it could be a simple portrait of one person.

Background? As a rule I keep the background simple and with either a gradient of colour of simple strokes. if you require a complex background this would add extra onto the total.

How big you would like it to be and on what surface.

what medium, paint or drawing?

The deadline if you have one. (Such as for a birthday or anniversary).

Once I have this information I will be able to supply you with a bespoke quote. Don’t forget to look at my prices as a guide.

Once you have decided to go ahead with your choice of painting, I will require a non- refundable deposit (usually 25% of the final price), which covers materials and my time.

I am also happy to paint a favourite celebrity/ musician/ sports hero etc.
