Portraits from a Favourite Photograph

There are many instances where it is not possible, or practical, to arrange a portrait sitting. Perhaps it is for a surprise present, or of someone who is overseas or has passed away. In these instances, I’m able to offer an original portrait prepared from your favourite photo, for a wide range of budgets, from pencil drawn portraits on paper to portraits on canvas.

If you are considering commissioning such a portrait, you may already have a good idea of the type of picture you want. However, the photograph may dictate the most appropriate type of work. Take a look at my gallery to view more examples of my work.

Please feel free to call for an informal chat to discuss your requirements, on 01691 839097, or email me.

Pricing Guide

From a small pencil drawn portrait to a large painting, each original work has specific requirements, and therefore prices vary widely.

Prices start at £250 for an A4 portrait drawing, £395 for an A3 portrait in watercolour and £3000 for a portrait on canvas (30 x 20 inches). Prices will be higher for detailed backgrounds, extra faces and larger works. Travel charges will be chargeable at my discretion.

Once the commission is agreed, I require a 50% payment prior to starting the work, the remainder due on completion.

I am based near Oswestry in Shropshire and welcome visitors and can travel.
