Bespoke Portrait, Animal & Equestrian Oil Paintings
I am a portrait and figurative artist with years of experience in capturing the likenesses of sitters (both human and animal!). I work in traditional oil in an alla prima style that's both expressive and realist - giving an artistic edge to a portrait without sacrificing the all-important likeness of the subject (please visit the gallery page to see examples of my work).
Portraits are available in a variety of sizes ranging from individual 12 x 12 Inch head studies to larger multi-person paintings.
i. The first step is to let me know roughly the subject matter of the painting and the approximate size. You can do so by filling in the form below or emailing details to: email@example.com. We can then have a chat to discuss the further details of the painting and any questions you may have. There is no obligation at this stage.
ii. I typically work from digital photographs as it is the easiest way for clients to get to me (especially when it comes to animals!). At this stage, you should send a selection of photographs of your subject via email - I can give you advice on what qualities I am looking for in your photographs before sending.
iii. When the painting is complete I will send you an image for approval. Any changes can be implemented at this stage. I will then send you a second photograph if needed. There will be no charge for the first round of adjustments but any subsequent changes may incur extra fees.
