Welcome to the first blog of 2016. I am going to share with you what you can expect from me when commissioning a painting.
Once we have established your budget we then discuss your preferred surface such as canvas, paper, board etc and I guide you on the size of the painting to ensure we remain within budget. What I need from you is clear concise instructions on the type of background you prefer if your subject is not a landscape. If you are unsure, don’t worry I will be able to make suggestions of backgrounds that will suit your painting, and if I am to paint a people portrait then I will need instructions on the type of pose you are looking for.
I then take a photograph and you choose the final picture. Please allow 4-6 weeks for the painting to be completed. I keep you informed of it’s progress by emailing you a picture, and if there are any changes to be made, then that is the time to make them. Paintings on canvas arrive to ready to hang at no extra cost and if your painting requires mounting and framing then I can get that done for you.
Until next time….
