This is Me! more info…

Thank you for being here. I’m glad you clicked through for more information.

Having a painting done of yourself or a friend/partner is a very special experience. First I take time to get to know the person as the more I know and understand them the better the painting will be. So it all starts with a chat and maybe even a walk in the park.

We can then sit down and chat about style and poses. What do you want the painting to say about you? What sort of image of yourself do you want to portray? I have scrap book of images that can help you with this.

You don’t have to restrict yourself to head and shoulders. You could have a tasteful nude for the bedroom. The choice is yours. We also talk about the size of the painting and where it might be positioned in your home.

Next I do some ‘test shots’ with the camera. We can both look at these and decide what you like best.

You can then ‘dress for the painting’ and we can prepare the area where you’ll be sitting. I’ll do some more photos and also a sketch from life.

Once we are happy with the composition and what’s to be included in the painting I have all I need to work on the painting in my studio.

It then usually takes 6-8 weeks for the painting to be completed. This is however dependent on size and complexity. If you want to see the painting as it progresses we can arrange for that too!

If you want to chat about a painting please get in touch. Either email me, click here, or give me a call 07966 872786
