Commissioning a painting is easy.

Just get in touch and we can discuss your idea.



  • We discuss all aspects of the painting - the subject, medium, size and budget. If you come with a clear idea of what you want this can be a very quick conversation. If you are a little unsure of what you are after then I can help. I have been doing this for many years and have plenty of ideas and previous work to inspire you.

  • A contract is signed and a deposit of 50% is paid. So there are no misunderstandings and we agree all aspects of the commission. The full balance becomes due once you have approved the final painting.

       Work begins...

  • We organise the photographs. My paintings are from photographs so I will either need some good quality photos from you, or preferably, we book a time for me to come and take some. It is always a good thing to meet the subject first. It may be a yacht, a person or a landscape that is special to you. They all have personalities that I would like to get to know a little first. This is not essential or even possible sometimes - for instance if the painting is a surprise gift! We will go through the images to choose the very best ones to use as references for the painting.

  • When you are completely happy I can start on the full size painting. 

  • You will receive progress reports on your painting and the estimated completion time. You can always call me if you have any questions.

  • The painting will be framed in my standard off white frames ready to hang. Unless agreed otherwise.


  • I will send a high resolution image for your approval. The remaining balance is then paid. Delivery can take place once funds have cleared.

  • Collection or delivery or shipping will be arranged. 



  • Thank you for taking an interest in my work.
