Commission a painting of a house

I'm happy to take commissions for oil paintings of houses, pubs or other buildings. Price depends on the size and complexity of the work of course, but as a guide a 18x24" (45x60cm) painting would cost between £300 and £500. The paintings are done on gesso primed composite panels (panels have better stability and longevity than canvas) I also use top quality archival oil paints so that the work should last more than a lifetime. Delivery is free within the UK and costs £50 for the rest of world.

How does it work?

You email me some photographs of the house (iphone pics are absolutely fine) and tell me what you love about the place. That will help me to know which aspects to emphasise in the painting. That's the beauty of a painting, it can capture the essence of something and present it in its best light.

Next you send a £50 deposit via Paypal and I'll generate the initial sketch of your painting. If you're happy with the sketch, I'll go on to create the oil painting. Depending on my workload, this will usually take about six weeks. I'll send you a photograph of the painting as soon as it's finished, but it will be a few weeks later before I can ship the actual work to you because the surface needs to be properly dry first.

Your painting can be supplied framed and ready to hang (at additional cost) or just as a panel so you can arrange your own framing.
