COMMISSIONING A PAINTING OR DRAWING:
A bespoke oil painting or drawing offers a unique gift for someone special. It records a moment in time, a birthday or anniversary, a place of significance, view of a house or interior, Still Life of treasured objects or beautiful flower composition. By using high quality oil pigments this offers a luminosity likened to precious jewels with exceptional permanency, far exceeding prints or photographs. Alternatively commissioning a drawing offers a quintessential black & white interpretation of a subject.
The commissioning process is simple beginning with an initial meeting to discuss the available budget, medium and style, compositions etc, and is without a fee. A few sittings are required for a Portrait in conjunction with reference photographs which reduces the number of sittings. Aside from creating a likeness, Victoria seeks to capture the essential persona and unique character of the sitter. Family groups, children or a full-length portrait create very interesting compositions. Equally a vignette, or partially completed study can create a very vibrant impression and is particularly suitable for portraits of children. High quality Giclee prints on archival paper are available of all paintings shown on the website.
