COMMISSIONING A PAINTING OR DRAWING:
A bespoke oil painting or drawing offers a unique gift for someone special to record a moment in time, a birthday or anniversary, place of significance, view of a house/interior, Still Life of treasured objects, or beautiful flower composition. Using high quality oil pigments this offers a luminosity likened to precious jewels together with exceptional permanency far exceeding digital prints or photographs. Alternatively commissioning a drawing can offer a quintessential black & white interpretation of a subject.
The process is very simple beginning with an initial meeting to discuss the medium/style, composition and available budget, and is without fee. Only a few sittings are required for a Portrait, with drawings and reference photographs. Aside from creating a likeness,the essential persona and unique character of the sitter is important. Family groups, children or a full-length portrait can create very interesting compositions. Equally a vignette or partially completed stud,y can create a very vibrant impression and is particularly suitable for portraits of young children.
