Whether it’s for yourself or as a gift for someone you know, there can be fewer things more personal and unique than a specially commissioned painting. By asking me to paint your (or their) favourite view you will be creating something that will last forever, have deep meaning and be a real talking point.


And bear in mind that while I specialise in paintings of North Wales, I am more than happy to paint landscapes elsewhere.


The process is very straightforward. We’d start by discussing the view that you’re interested in having captured and the size of painting that you would like. I can advise you on what I think might or might not work. I might also suggest meeting on site to discuss the view in detail, particularly if you have very specific requirements about what should be included. However, this isn’t usually necessary and sometimes isn’t practical.


Once we've agreed what the painting will look like, I will provide you with a proper quotation. You can get an idea of prices here.


If you then decide to go ahead, I will ask for a 20% deposit.


I will consider painting from your own photograph(s) but please don't be offended if I say 'no' as I will almost always prefer to visit the location myself, so that I can get proper inspiration.


As soon as the painting is finished, I will send you a photograph. Assuming you are happy with what I’ve produced, I will then talk to you about framing options. I can either arrange this for you (this is what most of my customers choose) or you are you are welcome to sort it out yourself.  I will invoice you for the outstanding balance from the original quote plus any framing charges before getting it framed.


If there are things you don’t like about the painting, I am happy to make minor alterations. However, I can’t change the painting substantially unless it is clear that I have failed to meet the brief.


How long the whole process takes depends on a few factors, not least the weather and how far away the location is (for example, if you approach me in May asking for a snow scene, then clearly it is clearly going to be a while before I can get started!). Note that the framing alone has 4-week turnaround. So, I generally tell people to allow at least two months from the day you instruct me.


I do hope that you choose me to create that special painting! Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to start your journey to owning or gifting something very special.

Here are some commissions I've recently completed.
