SUBJECT & PHOTOGRAPHS
I usually work from photographs. The more photographs of the subject, and the higher the quality, the better. You can send me a digital version via email or WeTransfer. Try to find the original photo (not a screenshot) as otherwise the quality is diminished.
If the painting idea is more conceptual/abstract and so there are no photographs to send, we can have a conversation about the ideas you have, and we can work together to create the painting you want.
MEDIUM AND MATERIALS
I usually work with oil paint or watercolour. You can find examples of the differences between these paints in the work sections of my website. Oil paint would be on canvas, while for watercolour pieces, I would use paper.
I also use mixed media for a scribble style painting. Usually I use a mix of acrylic, ink and watercolour for these pieces.
If in doubt, I'm very happy to answer any questions you have over email.
With oil paintings, I usually work on standard size canvases:
A0 33.1 x 46.8 in
A1 23.4 x 33.1 in
A2 16.5 x 23.4 in
A3 11.7 x 16.5 in
A4 8.3 x 11.7 in
However, if you are looking for a particular size, I can source other canvases or build my own.
For watercolour pieces, I only go up to A3 size.
PRICE & PAYMENT& DELIVERY
Once we have discussed the painting in depth and considered all the variables, I will send a quote. If you decide to go ahead, depending on the size and complexity of the project, I require a 30-50% deposit before I begin.
When I feel that the painting is close to finished I’ll send a photo and email it over for you to have a look. At this point you can let me know if there’s anything you’d like me to alter. When you’re completely happy you can make the payment via bank transfer and I’ll send your portrait straight out to you via special delivery, (unless you live locally, in which case we can make another arrangement).
This is a fully tracked and signed for service so I can let you know your tracking number and when to expect delivery.
