Commission a painting
Art created specifically for you.
Are you looking for the perfect original painting or series of paintings for your home or business? Or the ultimate personal gift for someone special?
If so, please browse my website and gallery links and if you like what you see, contact me to start the commission process.
Abstract and Abstracted Landscapes
You may have a particular colour palette or mood you want to create. You may have seen a work that you like that has already sold or you would like larger or smaller version. While I would never re-produce a previous work, I would be happy to work with you to develop a unique painting inspired by your preferences.
Specific Landscape or Location
Maybe you have a particular place in mind; a seascape, a favourite tree or view that you want to be reminded of and connected to? From concept to completion, you the client and I would work together to bring an idea to reality. I would visit the location, sketch, photograph and paint to start the process. I would invite you to become engaged in the creative process through discussions, helping me to produce a painting whose conception, title, subject, colour, and form are truly personal to you.
A commissioned painting typically takes from 6 to 12 weeks to complete depending on size (I have been known to complete a commission in a week). Acrylic is quicker and Oils will take longer due to their slow drying rate.
Several factors can affect the cost of a commissioned painting, including size, content, medium, travel expenses, accessibility of the subject, and picture framing. Due to the extra work involved, prices are usually approximately 20% higher than my equivalent gallery prices. Prices can be negotiated.
Framing costs are not included in the price but I can arrange for framing with an excellent Herefordshire frame-maker if required. I look forward to hearing from you.
