My main focus for commissions is oil landscapes, typically holiday photos or paintings of clients homes. In some cases the scenes are exactly as Life, in others a degree of creativity is possible it just depends on what you would like and whether I think I can tackle it!
When fulfilling a commission I would expect to do pencil sketches so that all elements of the painting are agreed before committing to paint. In large or complex paintings I would also do a small oil sketch so that colours and mood can be agreed. The final work is priced unframed.
Prices vary according to the size of canvas required and whether I incur significant expenses completing the work. As a guideline 30x24cm panel starts at around £200; 50x40cm at around £300; 56x46cm at around £350.
