Let’s paint that memory!
Thank you so much for contacting me and asking for a commission. Usually people ask me to paint a memory from a photograph, either as a gift or for themselves. I feel honoured to be asked and will do my best to make each piece as personal as possible. Please find a little bit more information below about the process.
ABOUT THE PROCESS
I work by making a series of sketches and paintings of your chosen image. I then layer them all up, creating a vivid and delicate artwork. I will email you a picture of it when I think it is completed and at this moment you can tweak it if you want to. We can discuss the colours and potentially change the composition. I really want you to be 100% happy with it.
Once it is all confirmed I send it off to be made into an Art Print.
I then will frame it and get in touch when it’s ready for collection. In total the process takes about 2 weeks from me receiving all the information from you.
I will always invoice you only once you have confirmed you like it via email.
Soooooooo….. if you’re happy - Let’s get on with the commission. Before I get started I will need a few things from your end.
I NEED FROM YOU, FOUR THINGS IN AN EMAIL ….
1. Please email me the image you would like me to draw with your name in the subject title. Photos need to be good quality and with enough detail for me to paint from.
I can only work from one photo, if you would like me to combine multiple photos then this can also be discussed (see fees below). If you only have a low quality photo , I will flag this up and we can work together to make it as special as possible.
2. Let me know at the start if you would like any writing or text under the image. Sometimes the date or name of the place looks quite lovely. Please email this at the same time you send me the photo.
3. Let me know how you would like to receive the artwork. Postage and packaging to the U.K is £19, this is a signed for courier service that is really trustworthy and usually gets to you within 24 hours. If not, my studio is in west London and we can sort a good time out for collection.
4. Please let me know what size you would like (see fees below). All frames are plain white with an off white mount, they are lovely and simple.
– STANDARD -
Image size is A4 , With the frame and mount it makes it just larger than A3.
Mount opening is about A3 in size and the frame is roughly a large advent calendar size.
-EXTRA LARGE – -
The image size is like a typical poster size; over all with the frame and mount it is 52cm x 72 cm.
If you would like me to source a more bespoke frame, double or coloured mounts, please let me know I can use a wonderful framer I work with.
*If you would like me to combine multiple photos I will charge an extra £35 per photo.
*If you would like me to beautifully wrap the framed artwork and send it as a gift then please do let me know. I can include a personalized message on a special card if you would like, for an extra £10.
Size large- extra £20
