I really enjoy working with clients to create commissioned paintings.
If there is a painting of mine that you love but has already been sold why not commission a similar piece?
Particular flowers may hold special meaning for a loved one, so you could surprise them with a gift of their favourite blooms made ever-lasting in oils.
You can also personalise the painting with a special vase or object, so long as this can be delivered to my studio in Twickenham.
As I work from life the flowers need to be in season, so please bear this in mind if you want the painting for a special occasion. I need as much notice as possible so that I can schedule the painting in between my commitments to exhibitions.
I also undertake landscape commissions in my local area of Twickenham, Richmond and London. I work outdoors on location rather than from photographs. My outdoor paintings are between 8 x10" and 9 x 12".
White Rose in a Silver Vase Oil on panel 8 x 10"
A special anniversary gift from the client to his wife, the vase was supplied by the client for the painting, and then given as a gift along with it.
Peonies and Hydrangeas in a Glass Jug Oil on panel 16 x 20"
A combination of flowers and colours suggested by the client, created as a gift for his wife.
Primroses in a Glass Bottle Oil on panel 4 x 4" A little gift from the client to a friend who deserved a special treat. Based on previous sold work.
Anemones in a Blue Glass Bottle Oil on panel 8 x 10"
Sometimes a client just wants a little treat for themselves, and perhaps has been following my work for a while but not quite seen the painting that they will fall in love with. In this case the client suggested a painting using her favourite flower, anemones, with the composition based on one of my previous paintings she had seen of freesias in a blue glass bottle.
Hammerton's Moorings, November Oil on panel 9 x 12"
Commissioned as a gift, I am often asked to paint scenes which hold special memories or meaning for the client.
Please get in touch using the form below if you would like to chat about a potential commission, I will send you my price list (commissions are priced as per my gallery work) and we can talk about the design and timescale.
I will update you throughout the process of my progress.
If the piece is highly personalised then a deposit of 50% upfront will be required. The remaining balance is to be paid on completion before the work is delivered.
Please note that if you discovered my work through one of my galleries you should contact them to arrange the commission, the cost will be the same.
