Commissioning a Portrait

Choose a subject and find an image

The better the image the better the final portrait. I can help with choosing the image and even taking the image. 

  • Decide on the size you would like.
  • Consider the place you want it to go andthe colours which might compliment that setting. 
  • Think about background- plain, patterned, naturalistic


                  ...or leave it all up to me!! 


The customer is consulted during the process to check the image is right in its likeness and personality. 

The Process

Choosing the image.

The better the image the better the final portrait. 

Starting the painting

Base layers - building up these and refining the detail.
