Please note – I am fully booked for commissions until May 2020

Please use the oil painting enquiry form below to contact me about a commissioned oil painting. I offer a couple of styles:

  • Standard paintings – requires a high quality digital photograph. I paint from the reference photo which means the painting will resemble the photograph as much as possible.
  • Chiaroscuro style paintings – this style requires specific lighting conditions which means I will need temporary access to the subject in order to set up the lighting effects properly.

Lead time – the process can take up to 4-8 weeks depending on the size and detail of the project (also depending on current workload). I use alkyd oil paints for commissions so that you don’t have to wait for the oils to ‘cure’ for 6 months.

Payment – commissions require a 50% deposit with the balance payable upon completion.

Guest Artists – don’t forget to check out the guest artist page too for other options regarding styles/mediums. Most of my guests take commissions too.


  • Traditional oil paints – for example Winsor & Newton, Michael Harding and some alkyds (alkyds are faster drying oil paints).
  • Artist panels and stretched canvas – for example smooth Ampersand, fine grain Belle Arti and Gallery Fine stretched cotton.
  • Clear none yellowing gloss – for example Gamblin Gamvar Picture Gloss
  • Art Prints – giclée archival papers –  for example Hahnemühle Pearl.
  • Other materials – some paintings have a smattering of metal leaf, for example on wing tips – this is outlined in the painting description.

If you have any questions about materials, please use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
