Oil portraits of people or pets are now available in sizes starting at an 20cm / 8″ square. They are painted on 19mm thick, premium cotton canvas with ‘gallery wrap’ painted sides so you can frame them the traditional way, or put them straight on the wall or mantelpiece for a more modern look.

Follow the link for general information on commissioning a portrait.  There’s more information on how to select suitable photos for me to work from here including what sort of photographs I’ll need to work from and how the whole process works. When you’re ready please contact me by phone or email and we can have a chat about what you are looking for with your oil portrait.

Even though I generally like to work in a fresh ‘alla prima’ style without lots of underlayers, oil portraits take a little longer to produce than pencil or watercolour portraits due to the drying time so this is worth bearing in mind if you have a particular deadline.
