I also take on individual commissions for customers. If you would like me to undertake a painting on a commissioned basis, please get in touch. `The fee for a commissioned painting will cost up to 15% more, due to extra research, planning, communication etc. This will be arranged in the initial booking and with a 50% deposit of final cost.
I like to discuss with you, your chosen location, and ask you to take photographs of where you like to stand and look at the view you love. I’ll visit the location and sketch and take my own photos too. This always helps me, as I’d rather experience the location myself to understand it and get the composition right. I will show you an idea and composition before we go ahead and then ask you things like, what colours, flowers, maybe even the season and tide times you like. Anything that you might like to have in the final. The time it takes to paint a commission will depend on a few things, size, drying time etc, but generally it will take a month. All of these things can be arranged when booking.
Thank you very much.
