COMMISSIONING A PAINTING
|COMMISSIONING A PAINTING|
There is something really special about a unique, original painting. It is a wonderful way to recreate memories and conjure up a true sense of nostalgia. If you have a particular vehicle or scene you would like capturing on canvas I would be very happy to discuss a commission. I have undertaken quite a number of commissions, both for private individuals and for companies - both large and small, and I'm pleased to say that the list continues to grow.
Take a look at some of the previous commissions I have painted.
The cost of commissioning a painting depends on several things including
- the complexity of the subject
- the medium that the painting is painted in
- whether or not you wish to secure the copyright of the original painting for yourself.
As an example an unframed painting of a single vehicle without a background and measuring approximately 16 inches by 12 inches the cost would be £250 and large montage painting, measuring approximately 24 inches by 16 inches with several vehicles would cost £750 .
Doing the necessary research to get it right and making sure that you are completed satisfied is very important to me, after all the painting will be around for a long time hopefully. I have to split my painting time between my self initiated projects and commissions so I accept only a small number of commissions each year. How quickly I can complete your painting would depend on what work I was undertaking at the time of your commission, but it is likely to take several weeks. If you are considering a painting as a gift for a special occasion please get in touch with me in plenty of time - it can never be too soon but it can be TOO LATE!.
I often use photographs as a source of reference for paintings. These can be ones taken either by me or by the person commissioning the painting but I cannot reproduce the image shown in a photograph as a painting without the written consent from the copyright owner (usually the photographer who took the original photograph).
