Commissioning a drawing or painting is a simple process. I work from high resolution digital images of your chosen subject. These can be emailed or sent to me via one of my social media platforms, which means that I am able to work with clients world wide.
The photo needs to be as in focus and as detailed as possible. The higher resolution and quality the photo is, the better I can create an accurate representation for you. If possible I prefer multiple images in addition to your preferred one. This allows me to better understand and represent your subjects unique features.
If you're not sure which photo would be best to work from, that's no problem, I will happily guide you through the pro's and cons of each photo you send to me and give you an idea of what will work.
I have worked with clients across the globe to produce portraits and will happily provide progress shots at regular intervals to those who wish to receive them.
Portraits can take a minimum of one week to one month to produce depending on size, complexity of the composition, the number of subjects being portrayed, and whether is it a drawing or a painting.
Oil paintings require time to dry. Much like gloss paint they can be touch dry within days however remain soft just under that surface for far longer. Please allow a minimum of one month drying time before your painting will be ready to transport. Extra time to dry may be required for pieces needing to be varnished or couriered overseas.
Charcoal and pencil drawings can be produced for a shorter deadline (subject to availability) and are able to be posted as soon as they are finished. They are sent unframed and carefully rolled in a parcel tube, after fixative has been applied.
