I undertake commissions of original art for private individuals, organisations and companies.
Most individuals request images of their home or a place that they want to remember or revisit such as wedding venue or favourite landmark. Created to the client specifications, the process follows a number of stages to reach a final drawing. (Commissions for book and general illustrations are also undertaken - please contact me for further details).
PLEIN AIR ART COMMISSIONS
I can work to commissions for specific plein air pieces but if the place or landscape you want is outside of South Wales - I can work from photographs.
Use the contact form to get in touch with your idea for a commission & your timescale.
I will work with you through your photos, my sketches and site visits (if your special place is not too far away) to create an original drawing.
I'll need about 2-4 weeks from the point that I have all I need to get going, but I do have a 'waiting' list for commissions. If you have a deadline- please let me know as soon as possible. Once you are happy with the initial idea, a deposit payment is required. I'll start work on the final artwork when the drawing and deposit are finalized. I'll send you progress pictures of your commission OR if you want to leave it to be a surprise I can do that too.
A low resolution image of your final drawing will be sent to you prior to requesting the final payment.
An A3 commission is £300
A4 £150 &
Collection of artwork & payment in person is possible. PLEASE NOTE Commissions due to their specific nature are non-exchangeable items however the process is created in a tiered way to allow for changes and development. Please see shop policies.
Copyright remains with the artist.
BUY AS A GIFT
I can put together a letter of introduction about the work for the recipient and a gift note.
Framing or mounting is available. We can also make personalised gifts such as prints, mugs, cards and even doormats from the original drawings. There are additional charges for these items which make great gifts for family or friends - or as wedding favours for guests, family, bridesmaids or ushers.
