Portrait and Still Life Painting

The intention of my oil portrait painting is to capture the spirit and individuality of the sitter. Commissions have included children and adults, in single and double portrait poses.

In my still life painting I hope to discover the quiet contemplation of everyday objects.

Do contact me by email or telephone for an initial chat. I look forward to hearing from you.

Commission information for portrait painting

The first meeting with the client ascertains the pose, clothing
and setting. It is at this stage that I take photographs for reference
and make preliminary sketches. At my studio I work on the drawing
to size and once approved, I will start work on the painting. The
painting process will take from 8 to 10 weeks to complete.

At drawing approval stage I will invoice 30% of the total fee.
Final payment is due on completion and presentation of the portrait.

Portraits can also be painted from direct observation and sittings.
Details on request.
