All of my portraits are meticulously painted in oils on gesso-primed board and take several weeks or months to complete. If you would like to commission a portrait I will need one or two good quality photographs to work from, or I can visit you to take my own reference photographs, and I require a 30% non-refundable deposit before I start.
The time taken to produce your painting will depend on its scale and complexity as well as my current workload. If you require a portrait for a special occasion it is advisable to order well in advance. However, if you have run out of time to commission a portrait for a particular date, you may like to consider purchasing a gift voucher instead. Gift vouchers allow the recipient to order their portrait whenever they choose, and are available in any amount as full or partial payment towards the cost of a portrait.
