Commissioning a portrait

If you would like to commission a pencil portrait, please follow the steps below.

The bigger and clearer the photo the better, as the more detail I can see, the more I can incorporate into the final portrait. If you have more than one photo and would like some help choosing the best one, or if you’re unsure whether a photo is suitable or not, I’m more than happy to give you some guidance.

Once you’ve decided on the photo, contact me with your requirements and I can provide you with a quote. Prices start at £70 for a single A4 portrait and £90 for a couple. I’ll also need a copy of the photos you would like me to use as the basis of the portrait. The preferable option would be to email me a copy of the photo, however, I am happy to receive them by post. The photo will, of course, be returned to you with the final portrait.

Assuming you are happy with the quote, I will require a 50% deposit for security. You can make your payment by cheque or online via Paypal. I will contact you to confirm receipt of your payment.

Once I have completed your pencil portrait I will contact you. I will send you a full size scan of the artwork (via email or post, as preferred) for your final approval. If you are happy with it, I will ask you to pay the remaining balance of 50% before posting the portrait to you. Your portrait will be sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery and will need to be signed for. Please confirm the delivery address along with your final payment.

I will endeavour to complete the portrait within 2 weeks of ordering, however, this will depend on my current commitments, therefore, please allow 1 month from date of order for completion of the drawing.

Thank you for your interest.
