Commission A Painting

DP CommissionIt is also possible to commission your favourite artist to paint to a size to fit the space available in a room and to depict a desired scene or favourite location.

Commissions are normally produced at similar costs to work already produced by the artist but you will need to be absolutely sure of what you want before going down this route.

It is often best to find a similar painting in style, colour and size etc and also have a photograph(s) of what you have in mind in order to give as much guidance to the artist as possible, while still allowing them to add their own perspective and unique interpretation.

We are familiar with this process, particularly as we have our own Artist in Residence, and can help and advise you on achieving what you want. You should however note that not all artists produce commissions and it can take several months depending upon the time of year and their workload to complete the work.

Call 01841 532 043 or Contact Us by Email for an informal chat.
