Portrait Painting.

Painting a portrait always brings me back to the fundamentals of painting. Some artists say they don’t have time to paint in the classical style. I don’t believe that, it’s not the time one spends on a painting that makes for a good portrait it’s what you put into it that counts. I just love to give everything to create a painting so special it will be treasured for every.

Portraits can take approximately two months to complete from booking to framing.

Currently I offer reasonably priced portraits* for which I include in my portfolio. A sitting should normally take less than one hour, depending on the complexity of the sitting. If you are interested to indulge in a unique experience for yourself or someone you love. Then nothing can surpass having an original piece of commissioned art work that you would value through many generations to come. To simply enquire for details of a commissioned portrait without obligation please use my contact form within this website.

My commissioning process starts with a consultation over the phone or if in the North Yorkshire area I will be happy to meet in your office or home. During this consultation I will take your considerations into account and plan the portrait. A sitting would normally take less than 60 minutes where I will take a series of photographs and sketches.

Expect to pay upwards of £750 for a head and shoulders in oil on canvas. Half and three quarter length portrait range from £800 to £15,000, with full length work, group portrait included, costing between £4,000 and £35,000.

*Up to 30% off the price, if you agree to your commissioned portrait be used within this website and included in my portfolio.
