Adult Painted Portraits

Whenever I am commissioned to paint a portrait, my chief aim is to catch the very essence of my sitter and to satisfy their expectations. We usually commence with a discussion of what we are hoping for. I haven’t ever, nor ever will allow a portrait to leave my studio unless I have delivered 100% satisfaction. My passion for art will not allow me to avoid this principled approach, and both I and my sitter must be totally happy with the completed portrait.

“…it’s wonderful to hear that you have started work on Zekes portrait. There is an empty space next to Jed and Keirs beautiful paintings! They have attracted much admiration from friends and family and are a delight to see everyday”

In the initial meeting we discuss clothing and any specific likes or dislikes the sitter may have. I explain the importance of various types of costume which can enhance the portrait. This meeting is a key part of the process as it helps me to draw from my long experience, the relevant information I need to plan the commission.
