I can be commissioned to produce bespoke original drawings of children and adults. A portrait makes a very special gift or a fabulous addition to your own home.
I draw the portrait using your photographs, and whilst they take many hours to do, I aim to keep them affordable by providing a range of different sizes to choose from. I will give you tips on taking photographs to make sure that the portrait is a great composition and as detailed as possible – it’s the small things that make up the characteristics of the person. Before I get started on the drawing I will discuss with you which photograph to use and the composition that will work the best.
You can see examples below (click on the drawing to see more detail). Further examples can be found on the Human Portrait page.
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 £65 (for ‘pocket portraits’). 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.
