How big will the finished Portrait be ?
I use standard sizes for portraits but you can specify any size you require. This will always be agreed before any work starts on the portrait. For further details see Prices and Sizes

What medium is available for my Portrait ?
The commission can be produced in a variety of media including graphite pencil, coloured pencil, pen and ink, watercolour or mixed media. For further details see Selecting a Medium

What sort of photo or digital image can be used ?
Either photos or digital images can be used. The photo or digital image must be clear and in focus. For a portrait the head should ideally be at least 2 inches (50mm) across and a good likeness of the subject. For further details see Choosing a Photo or Digital Image

I want a family portrait but am not sure what photos to send ?
For a family portrait or a portrait with more than one person, child or animal, I will need a clear in focus photo or digital image of each subject. However the individual subjects DO NOT have to all be on the same photo or digital image. I can combine subjects from different photos and re size them to suit the final portrait. See example on Family Page

How will I receive the final Portrait ?
A scan of the final portrait will be sent to you by email prior to posting the original or collection can be arranged locally. In the United Kingdom this will be by Royal Mail Special Delivery for non UK posting this will be by recorded delivery. All portraits are supplied professionally mounted.

How do I pay ?
By cheque or money order in Pounds Sterling. A 40% deposit will be required before work starts. The balance payable on completion. See Term and Conditions for further information.

How much will it cost ?
Prices start at £60 for Pencil and £110 for Watercolour (plus postage and packing). For further details see Prices and Sizes

How do I order a Portrait ?
To commission a portrait all you have to do is let me know the subject, which medium you require, the size and provide me with photos or digital images of the subject. You can either post photos, send digital images by email or hand deliver. For full details on ordering see How to Commission a Portrait.

You can contact me by telephone, letter or email to discuss individual requirements.

If you wish to visit my studio you are most welcome, but it is not essential to meet.

What if I don’t like the Portrait ?
A full refund will be given if you are not fully satisfied with the final portrait.
