Commissioning a portrait of a beloved home, or a venue where fantastic memories were created, is a special way of evoking that happy feeling for years to come.
I offer a portrait service, whereby, based on a photograph that you supply, I draw your home / special venue. This makes a fantastic gift for an occasion such as a house warming, wedding, anniversary or birthday.
There are two options available for the artwork in terms of style: either a graphite drawing, or a stripped back, ink line drawing. You can see examples below (click on the drawing to see more detail).
All drawings are produced on museum quality, Fine Art Trade Guild approved paper. The paper (including mount) is acid free and complies with the highest archival quality standards. All drawings are mounted using a window mount with an acid free back, and are wrapped in clear cellophane. By default a neutral white coloured mount board is used. All drawings are mounted to fit into standard size frames.
Portrait commissions start at £45. Postage is typically between £7 and £11 (depending on the size of the artwork) and is additional. All drawings are sent by recorded delivery.
A 40% deposit is required upfront when commissioning the drawing. The remaining balance is due when the drawing is complete and before I post it out to you. I will update you as I go along, and I will also email over a photograph/scan of the final piece before it is sent.
