How To Order Pictures Paintings And Other Artwork


When ordering a portrait please send a clear photograph, or a selection of photographs of the subject; this can be as an e.mail attachment, or post if you prefer.

If you require a portrait with more than one pet or person and you do not have a good photograph of them together, separate photographs may be used to make up the composition. In fact, this is most often the case for pictures which are to include multiple subjects.

Once your photographs have been received, I will contact you to discuss their suitability; and details regarding the portrait.

During the process of painting your picture I will keep you regularly informed of progress, and you will be able to view the portrait on this site during that time and prior to my dispatching the completed portrait to you.

The timescale involved for the completion of your portrait will depend on the size of picture, medium used, and number of subjects to be included.

As a guide, a small portrait 16×12″ with one subject will usually take no longer than 1 week in pastel. In oil this will be approximately 2 weeks.

Workload is also a factor, and I will of course give you an expected completion date for the portrait before you proceed. I will always do my utmost to complete a picture for a specific deadline.

Any photographs supplied for your portrait will of course be returned to you.
