A portrait is a unique gift, to record a moment in time, a birthday, wedding or anniversary and can capture a moment in time. A simple drawing can equally offer a quintessential black and white profile of the sitter. Alternatively a ‘vignette’ or partially completed oil study offers a vibrant expression, particularly suitable for portraits of young children. Other options include family/or group portraits, head/and shoulders, 3/4 or full-length, single/or double portraits.
Commissions may alternatively include a specific view of a house or garden, interior or a still life of special treasured objects.
The commissioning process includes an initial meeting to discuss the composition, medium and style within the available budget. Ideally a few sittings follow together with reference photographs.
