COMMISSIONING A PAINTING
I am a portrait artist and every commission I do is different. I am based in London but I paint commissions world wide.
My passion is in both painting horses and people. The painting series which I am currently working on are of both riders and horses together and capturing the special bond between them.
I can create a painting of you and your horse together or just a single portrait of you or your horse alone. I tend to have a realistic style but I can also work with a more expressive style if you feel that this is the direction you would like the painting to go in.
I work from a series of photographs and sketches to create the final painting. Every painting starts with an initial consultation to discuss ideas and for me to understand the painting which is being commissioned. After the consultation, I will then go away and put together a presentation of some mood boards and style frames. Once we have agreed on a direction I will then go ahead and organise a photoshoot for me to be able to get some reference photos for me to work from.
After the photo shoot, I will then create some composition sketches which will be the layout of the painting. Once the sketches are signed off I will then start to create the painting which depending on the size can take anywhere between 6- 16 weeks.
If you have any queries and would like a quote on a commission please feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com or call +447568082669.
