Portraits from photos

Do you have a photograph that you would like reproduced as a drawing, water colour or oil painting ?

Working in charcoal, sanguine oil pencil, water colour or oils I am happy to work from your photos to produce an original one-off piece of artwork and can work to a very high level of detail if requested. Prices vary depending on medium used, size of finished piece and amount of detail/time involved, and we can discuss this at the earliest stage.

The process

Email your digital photos, or scans from prints (I can scan the print if you like). I will make a composition sketch from this and email a copy to you for your approval before commencing the final artwork. If you wish to proceed I will request a non-returnable deposit of 50% of the agreedĀ cost. On completion I will email a copy of the artwork to you for approval, and on receipt of theĀ remainder of the fee will package and post out the artwork to you by Royal Mail Special Delivery.

Drop me an email at marksandpixels@gmail.com if you would like to discuss a possible commission or would like further details.
