A gallery showing a selection of adult portraits painted by the artist. Some were painted from life, and others from photographs taken by the artist.
With portraits of adults, whether its a corporate portrait for the boardroom or privately commissioned, although I am very happy to work from life, most of my clients prefer the convenience of a single photographic sitting to the commitment of repeated portrait sittings. For best results, if working from photographs, a half-day sitting is needed to give ample time to get a good portfolio of photographs, to make colour notes and get all the information needed to produce a good portrait. Normally, for smaller portraits, this photographic sitting takes place at my studio in Somerset; for larger portraits, I can travel to your home.
If working from life, the number of sittings needed depends on the size and type of portrait required, but they will need to be ideally on consecutive days.
I work predominantly in oils, but do offer pastel portraits too. Adult portraits are usually around life-size, though they can be smaller if required. I paint any size portrait from head and shoulders, through 3/4 length to full length standing.
Prices start from £3000 for pastel head and shoulders and start from £4500 for oil head and shoulders
