I am happy to discuss and answer any queries about a portrait commission. You can visit my studio by
appointment, or if you live further away we can do this by email, phone, or even via skype.
An informal discussion about what you’d like is a good starting point. Exchanging ideas and exploring the possibilities, we can discover how to approach the painting.
If you decide to go ahead, the next step is to take photographic references. These ensure a sitting can be really informal, relaxed, and quite un-posed. I also like to spend some time doing individual portrait sketch studies.
After looking through the images, I’ll sketch out a plan for the painting. At this point we’ll get together and decide the final composition. This could be by email. When I’ve reached a stage where I’m happy with the painting, I invite you to my studio for your first viewing.
