WARWICKSHIRE PORTRAIT PAINTER.
I am a Warwickshire Portrait Artist based in Leamington Spa. I paint and sketch portraits from photographs and can work on small and large scale pieces.
Portraits are a wonderful way of celebrating a relationship or simply capturing a family moment in time. They make great gifts for special occasions such as weddings, graduations and anniversaries and are always an original gift.
COMISSIONING A PORTRAIT
Painted portraits are unframed and painted in acrylic on traditional stretched canvas, allowing you to either hang them directly onto the wall or to have them framed yourself. Pencil sketches are drawn on good quality paper ready to be framed.
Please contact me to request a quote or to ask any questions. If you decide that you would like to commission a portrait then we will discuss by phone or email exactly what you’d like your portrait to be in terms of size, background and pose. If you particularly like any of the portraits in my gallery then please let me know.
Then it’s time to look through your photos or maybe take some new ones and send them to me so I can get started. Photos need to be clear and taken with a digital camera as photos taken by mobile phones are usually too pixilated. The more detailed the photo is the better the portrait will be. If you’re not sure whether a photo is suitable then email it to me and I’ll let you know what I think!
If you want a portrait of more than one person then it’s better to use a single photo so that the lighting is the same. If you can’t email photos to me then it’s best to have copies of your photos made before you send them to me.
