COMMISSIONS, CUSTOM ARTWORK, PERSONALISATIONS AND DIGITAL ARTWORK
If I haven't yet painted that scene of your favourite place on the Lincolnshire coast, you can order custom artwork.
Whether your happy place is in Skegness, Mablethorpe, Chapel St Leonards, Anderby Creek, Sutton on Sea, Sandilands or Cleethorpes (or anywhere in between!), I can create a piece of art that will capture your happy memories.
I love working with customers to create a painting that's really special and personal, so don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like a painting of your own.
If you'd like to know what other customers have said about my work, please take a look at my testimonials.
Commission a painting
WHAT IS A COMMISSIONED PAINTING?
A commission is a new, unique painting just for you!
It's special to you, and brings you happy memories.
I know how personal a commissioned painting is.
So I work with you to make sure I understand why the scene is special to you, and what you're hoping for from the painting.
WHAT'S THE PROCESS?
The process always starts with a conversation about what you'd like from your painting - the place, the scene, the mood.
I do some preliminary work on the composition and colours.
To do this, I can use photos you provide.
Or if it's a place local to me, I'll go and take my own reference photos, and do some sketches on scene.
I then create a brief proposal document for you.
It outlines my thought process, and how I think I can paint the scene you'd like.
I share that with you so you can be confident you'll be happy with the outcome before I start work on your painting.
If you're happy with my proposal, you can secure the work with a 50% deposit.
The remaining 50% is payable on completion of the painting.
WHAT SCENE CAN I HAVE?
You'll already know that I love painting seascapes and landscapes.
For commissions, I often paint someone's favourite beach, with their favourite people (and dogs) included in the scene.
I don't paint portraits of people but I do capture their likeness in my work.
I do though paint dogs, either as a 'studio style' portrait, or on the beach. For dog portraits, I'll need some good quality photographs from you. If you'd like me to paint your dog in the distance on the beach, I can work from a description of your dog, or from less detailed photographs.
I also paint buildings - houses, beach huts, holiday homes, shop fronts. Any building that is special to you!
