A Matching Pair
These two certainly liked to create a sense of mystery and excitement in their portraits. Sarah, the bonne viveuse with beret, gauloise and large glass of red wine, is only lacking a string of onions or a baguette to make her a living picture of 'je ne sais quoi'. Her husband, Chris, the suave man about town, an Italian town I imagine, sits drinking coffee, but is really acting as an MI5 agent. Love these two.
How to Be a Dog
Not only do you get a beautiful dog portrait here, but your very own blackboard so that you can ensure your dog is on task every moment of the day!
I love making commissions because I love working collaboratively. And that is what a commission is, a collaboration with you. Commissions vary in time and energy. Sometimes I am presented with a beautiful photo that will just work as a painting. More often than not, there is a degree of consultation, photoshop editing, even photography before an image is settled upon. And this process should not be rushed. You will be living with this painting after all so it is really important to me that we capture the character as well as the image of the subject. I have attached some guide prices. Please contact me if you would like more information.
I am more than happy to undertake to paint a commission. There may be a particular colour, mood or scene you want to capture. These are bespoke, oil on canvas individual paintings. If you like the way I paint, please feel free to contact me.
