COMMISSIONING A PAINTING
I am a portrait artist and every commission I do is different. My passion is painting horses but I love to paint people and the paintings which I am working on currently are of both riders and horses together.
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.
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 sighed off I will then start to create the painting which depending on the size can take anywhere between 6- 16 weeks.
Below is a rough size/ price/ time guide, these can vary depending on complexity and style. If you have any queries please feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
