Commissions

Please note: I am unlikely to be able to undertake any further commissions until Nov/Dec 2010.

Although some of the paintings are sold, I accept commissions and can paint similar pieces to any you see in my gallery. Most commissions are larger versions of a particular painting or similar piece in different colours. However it is not be possible to re-create an exact replica, each painting is unique and original in its own right.

I can match specifications of colour, size and the number of canvases should you prefer a diptych/triptych. I can source many different canvas sizes, from 4x3 inches to 48x28.

If you find the perfect painting but need different colours in order to match or compliment your decor, why not see how it would look? By changing the colours in the original image, I can give an indication of how a painting could look in the colour of your choice. A jpeg image can be emailed to you without obligation.

I am happy with as much or as little input as you like. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Paintings from Holiday Photos

Why not commission a painting similar to a favourite holiday / honeymoon photo. I've painted many seascapes from photos taken whilst on honeymoon in the Cook Islands, they feature in my South Pacific Seascapes Gallery. Commissions of sunset paintings are also available, please take a look at my Sunset Paintings or Italian Lakes collections for ideas.

The Process

When a commission is agreed a 40% non refundable deposit is taken upfront to cover all my costs.

When the painting is complete I email a jpeg photo for your approval. When approval and the remaining 60% payment plus postage costs are received, I will arrange a convenient date for delivery. This is usually within a day or so depending on the delivery method chosen/required.

Timescale

In general most commissions are finished and with the customer within 7-14 days. This can vary depending on my current workload and the materials in stock.
