Review posted April 26, 2019

This little landscape is my second purchase from Martin. When I saw it I just had to have it - love at first sight. Like my former purchase, "A Winter's Afternoon", it's an accomplished, confident work. It arrived promptly, so beautifully packaged that opening it was a delight in itself. "Downpour" is a little gem: quiet, contemplative, emotional and moody; I just love it. It speaks volumes to me and I will treasure it. Thank you Martin.

I am beyond happy. Martin sent this artwork by fast delivery which was very much appreciated and, because I was so excited to see the painting for real I was definitely not disappointed. The packaging was secure and so well done that it was like unwrapping a gift! Now to the painting itself: I adore it. The colour and tones are perfect and the simple, strong black frame is just right. That such a small image can convey so much feeling in a few brushstrokes is amazing. I'm so pleased that I bought it and am thrilled to own it. Thank you very much Martin.

Dear Phyllis. Thank you so much for this fantastic review - I think it must be the quickest I have ever had! It always gives me such pleasure when I hear that somebody is pleased with their purchase, and to read your positive comments has made my day - especially since this small painting is one of my own favourites. Your words show that you clearly understand what I was trying to achieve. Thank you once again. Very best wishes. Martin.

Martin Cook was a delight to deal with from the beginning to end of 'our project'. We commissioned him to paint a portrait of my wife - something we had never done before - and Martin made the whole process so easy, seemless and ultimately very rewarding for us. Throughout our communication, he made useful suggestions on style, pose, background, expression, colours, lighting etc without making us feel 'inadequate' and yet with an authority that we came to trust, enjoy and fully appreciate. The end result - just 3 months later - was wonderful and beat our expectations by many a mile. Martin's level of service was outstanding . He communicated very effectively and efficiently and was always available to provide objective comment on any of our thoughts or requests. Throughout the whole period that Martin was painting the portrait, we always felt that he was reflecting what we would want and indeed, most importantly, representing the best features & character traits in the painting. Martin was so easy to deal with. He was kind and generous with his time and offered much help and assistance at every stage, including organising the frame purchase, framing of the work and sending it to us in Ireland. Indeed, his packaging was an artform in itself! We would recommend Martin's artistic talent to anyone who is looking to commission a similar piece of art. His service levels are also second to none and he delivers his 'product' in a friendly, informative yet passionate manner. We will undoubtedly wish to utilise his talents again in the future.

From my point of view it was an absolute pleasure working with you on this, and your own input was crucial to the success of the painting. Thank you once again both for your commission and your review. Very best wishes. Martin.

Review posted June 19, 2017

I didn't mean to ask for a frame, if I did, and I really didn't like the frame which was cheap and unattractive looking, to me.

Response from Martin Cook

June 22, 2017

Hello Emily. Thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately it appears that you did not see my message sent the day after your purchase asking about framing issues, which would have afforded you the opportunity to let me know that you would prefer the painting supplied unframed. Had I known I would certainly have been happy to do this. I really am very sorry that this caused disappointment. Also, I have noted your view of the frame itself and will not be using this item again. Thank you once again for the honest feedback. Martin.
