Portraits

Commissioning a portrait from life provides an enjoyable, collaborative experience which results in an artwork that projects your image through time.

As few people in today's busy world can sit for the customary six sittings of two hours, I offer a single sitting of three hours during which I make a colour sketch and take reference shots. The process begins with a discussion about the pose, what the sitter will wear, where the image is to hang, and terms etc. You can also commission a portrait from agreed high resolution photographs that inspire me. The Portrait Experience Gift Card provides a unique present to commemorate a special event or anniversary.

Cost depends on the size of work, the number of sitters and whether it is a drawing or painting. Payment is spread in instalments across the time it takes to produce - normally around six weeks to three months. A non-obligation quote excludes framing, any pre-agreed travel/accommodation expenses incurred and shipment.
