Private Commissions - Process

The Process

The portrait will be inspired by photographs provided by you. So the first step is to take some photographs of the home or venue you’d like painted, with the view you like best. A minimum size of 500kb is needed for detail.

Purchase the size of home illustration you’d like here on the website. Once your order is received, I’ll be in touch to request your photographs and talk about how we’ll work together in more detail. You can usually expect delivery of artwork to your door in 2-3 weeks after the order is placed.

The creative process begins as a digital layout, based on your photographs. At this stage you can request anything you'd like to add or remove for the layout. For example, you may wish to include flowers in bloom which are out of season at the time the photograph was taken, or remove a car from the driveway. I can also change the season, so a grey wintery photograph can be made into a bright spring-filled painting!

Once you’re completely happy with the digital layout, the painting begins. Each finished painting is trimmed with a generous white border, to allow for perfect framing. If you have a frame already, the painting can be made to fit. Simply let me know the size required when sending your photographs.
