Commission a painting
Whether it is for a gift or for your own home, commissioning a painting is a very special experience. I have tried to simplify the process making it accessible and professional yet friendly
Step 1 - Photographs
Photographs - I would ask you to send lots of photographs, giving us lots to choose from. It is vital that the photograph is of high quality.
Often a child unaware of the camera makes a better photograph for a painting than something posed. It is this type of photograph that offers a reflective, thoughtful moment which can add a narrative effect to the painting.
Step 2 - Style/Size
Size - The choice of size for the painting is often dictated by wall space!
The painting I have used to demonstrate the process is 85cm wide x 135cm height , the child is painted full size.
I also paint to 3/4 size and head/torso.
Step 3 - Composition
Once the photograph and style/size have been chosen the composition is designed. This is then presented to you and confirmed....painting begins!
2/3 Life size - 85 x 70cm
Life size - 135 x 80cm
Head and torso - 45 x 45cm
Extras - It is possible to have additional extras in the painting such as a special toy or highly patterned clothing.
With prices to be quoted on an individual basis.
Terms and Conditions;
