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.
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.
- portraits – solo person and family portraits

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.
