Oil Portraits

Commission a unique oil portrait as a special gift to last which can be passed down through the family. A special gift for a loved one’s Birthday or Christmas present or to mark a special occasion such as a wedding, anniversary, retirement, life event or achievement.

The oil painting option is often favoured when there is an extra special event or person to record for posterity, or when there is a larger budget available. They generally cost more, because of the expensive paints and materials used, and for the fact they take longer to create.

Commissioning a Portrait

The process begins with a call or email from you. I will talk you through the process, and the options, the size and medium. Is it for a special occasion, and is there a time constraint? I would advise planning ahead as you will be in a queue!

On receiving the photo, and after you have given me your brief, I will confirm the final cost.

I always endeavour to be as approachable and helpful as possible throughout the whole process. As well as discussing the portrait in detail before commencing work, I always provide an opportunity for you to view a scan of your portrait when it’s nearing completion, so you can let me know if there’s anything you want me to change. My aim is for you to be completely satisfied with your finished portrait; this is reflected in my many returning customers.
