Commission an original piece of art just for you.

When you commission art, a bespoke work is created for you for a particular place or time, to celebrate something or someone special, or as a unique gift. John enjoys working on commissioned art, bringing to life your request, whether in oils or pastels.

Portrait Commissions

The first and most important reason for a Portrait is a likeness (Verisimilitude: to see clearly and record convincingly). Yes there is paint quality, Aesthetic appreciation and interesting composition but nothing is a success unless the Artist achieves a good likeness.

I have always enjoyed the challenge of a Portrait commission: when someone trusts me to record their features and Personality.

Commission Subjects

  • portraits – solo person and family portraits
  • homes and garden
  • landscapes – views, holiday locations
  • animals – horses, dogs
  • sports – golf, racing
  • cars, motorbikes and boats

If you are interested in a commission contact John himself through the contact page  to discuss your ideas and requirements. Based on your information he will then be able to provide you with a quote for the commission and confirm the stages and timings to produce your painting or pastel.
