Commissions are now being taken for 2013.
Depending on the size/style/medium of the picture, paintings can take from between 1 week to 1 month to complete....and pricing will be based on this.
Before working on a pastel painting it is preferable that I visit the location to work on colour sketches and consider various views and possibilities.
I like to see and feel the atmosphere of the surrounding area in order to facilitate my emotional involvement in the work.
I take many photographs and, if you would like, select those suitable to send to you for discussion and approval, along with framing preferences. Only then will the work begin on the painting.
However, you can also send me a photograph (7 x 7in or bigger) just to copy....ie a portrait. However, the photo quality must be high.
