Paintings are produced in oil on canvas and unless otherwise specified, sympathetically framed by a bespoke framer.
I can produce paintings to commission based on either written or verbal instructions, your own photographic images or other photographers images for which copyright has been waived.
The cost charged for commissioned work is likely to be higher than the prices quoted for my similarly sized, currently available gallery items, being dependent on complexity and the amount of initial research required to compose the picture. The prices quoted for in-stock paintings will serve as a basic indication of cost, based on similar size and subject.
On some occasions an initial cash deposit may be requested if costs are likely to be incurred if sight visits are required to initiate the painting.
Timescale to completion depends entirely on my order book and can only be suggested at the time of inquiry.
Paintings will be securely packed and delivered by courier at an agreed cost.
Some examples of my previously commissioned work are shown in the gallery sections under the following titles:-
Spitfire Sicily- Spitfire Mk iiiv over Sicily.
Killin- ex Caledonian 0-4-4 at Killin
Berwyn Halt- ex Great Western 55xx loco at Berwyn on the Llangollen Railway.
