Commissioning a painting is a straightforward and exciting process. In order to produce a painting for you, I would need to discuss a few parameters: size, canvas orientation, breed of cattle/animal, background colour/textures etc. Once we agreed on a way forward, I would produce three detailed colour compositions for you to choose from. When one of those drawings is absolutely right, I would begin the actual painting.
I would provide you with regular updates and photographs of the painting as it develops - and you are welcome to visit the studio to see the work in progress.
I would like your honest feedback during the process.
I usually take three payments for a commission with the final payment due once the
commission is completed and we are all happy with the finished painting. Here is an example of an initial drawing and the finished painting.
Commission Gift Folders
If you are looking for an extra special gift - you may like to consider a Commission Gift Folder. A gift folder allows the recipient to take part in the creative process involved in producing a piece of art. They would work with me and have a say on how their finished painting would look. The folder contains information about me, magazine articles about my work, greeting cards, an outline of the commissioning process, and a personalised gift card.
