During the year, I also take on commissions from customers. If you are interested in booking a Commission with me, please get in touch to talk through the location you are thinking of. I'll need to know the exact composition you'll like. This can be achieved by photos, and also by going to these places myself. Photograph compositions can work differently to how a painting might work, but I can talk with you about that. I know what works in a painting. We will work together until you are happy, and I might do some watercolours of the composition first.
What I'll ask you about your commission:
Exact location. It really helps if you have photos, favourite views. For e.g, is there a place you like to stand or sit.
What Season you'd like which effects which flowers, etc. Maybe things for my other paintings you like, including colours, rocks etc. If there are houses in the distance you like to add, more landscape to sky, maybe more sky to landscape eg. All kinds of info like that.
If you'd like to go ahead, I'll go to the location if possible and start some sketches and watercolours. I will then email over to you and chat about the composition. You choose the size you want. I do not charge more for commissions, unless we have agreed on any extra work.
What I've discovered, from working on previous commissions, is:
I will always ask for a deposit so the painting is then secured for you. I will never show it to anyone else.
There is no pressure to to buy the final painting.
Framing is separate. I am happy to arrange framing for you if you prefer. This will be an extra payment.
