COMMISSIONS


Dear Visitor,

Thank you for thinking about commissioning a painting – I’m so pleased you like my work.

Commissioning an original painting is a great way to ensure that you get the exact size and style of painting – to fill that wall space in your home.

Unfortunately, I do have a waiting list of around 48 months (+) at the moment... so if you don't mind quite a wait - I am happy to add your name.


SUBJECT

I only undertake abstract commissions (in my style) – however I am open to using a favourite scene or skyline as inspiration.

It is also useful to know which paintings of mine you like – as this gives me an idea of the kind of palette and style you prefer.

Before I start your painting I will email you a preliminary sketch - so you can approve the subject and intended composition.

On occasion I may approach you with a 'sneak preview' of a recent piece that matches your preferences.

If I do get in touch please try and get back to me as soon as you can (i.e. within 48 hours)... so if you don't like it - I can approach the next person in my list.


PRICES

My prices are always the same as my normal website prices...

So please make sure you are happy with the prices of my recent sales.

PROCESS
 
If you wish to be added to my waiting list, please email me or use my 'contact' messenger with your preferences and contact details - be sure to use a current email address that you check regularly to avoid any delays in correspondence.

I can then put your name down on my waiting list – and contact you nearer the time when I am close to starting.

If you change your mind in the meantime (e.g. secure a piece online)… I can take you off the list at any time – without obligation.

When I am ready to start I will email you to ask if you still want to go ahead... and to confirm your preferences - size, palette etc.

Please ensure that you add my email address to your contacts so that any correspondence doesn't end up in your junk folder.

I will then email you a sketch for you to approve.

Abstract commissions can be tricky - as I can never really predict or guarantee the exact final piece.

In the unlikely event that your painting isn't to your liking - you are under no obligation to buy.

However, I'm afraid that I won't be able to produce another piece for you - as my commission list is just too long to make multiple attempts.

So to give me the best chance of getting it right first time... please provide as much information about your ideal piece as possible e.g. specific characteristics of your favourite paintings, what you like most about it etc.

Once you have approved the final piece - you will be able to secure the order by making prompt payment via the website page link provided.
