Artist's description:

A painted portrait can make an incredibly personal gift for the subject, other family members or even yourself. Here's a simple guide on how to commission your very own portrait. It's really easy and when you're ready just give me a call or drop me an email/contact form.

Step 1: Choose a good photograph

I work from photographs, so choose an image that you love. It needs to be pretty good quality (over 1Mb in file size) so that I can crop and zoom in a little. The main thing is that you love the expression and you feel it truly reflects the person. Look at the lighting, the eyes and make sure you get permission from the photographer as they own the copyright of the image.

Step 2: The concept

I love to be left with some creative freedom (as that's what you pay an artist for right!) but I'm more than happy to discuss some key colours and tones to ensure that the piece fits nicely into the intended environment.

Step 3: Once the image has been agreed and a date set to start. I will need at least a week to paint the portrait and it will need at least 2 to 3 weeks to dry. Please have this in mind when you place your order. Please ignore the Artfinder deadline of 1 week to deliver. I will keep in contact throughout the process and let you know when its ready.
