POSTAGE

 

Postage will be added to the final payment and this will depend upon the size of the painting - I will let you know on completion how much that will be.  I will send you a copy of your completed painting when requesting the final payment and upon receipt of a cleared cheque the painting will be posted to you by next day delivery.

 

 

GIFT VOUCHERS

 

Gift Vouchers are available and are ideal for birthday and Christmas presents.  Please contact me if you require one of these.

 

COMMISSIONING

 

E-MAIL - Please send me photographs of the subject, letting me know the medium, the size and the date required (see below) together with any other relevant information. I will also need your telephone number in order I can contact you if there is a query.

 

TELEPHONE

 

Please telephone me to discuss what you would like and then you can send me photographs of the subject (see below)   

 

I REQUIRE A 50% DEPOSIT IN THE FORM OF A CLEARED CHEQUE BEFORE COMMENCING ANY PAINTING. 

 

(You may pay by BACS into my bank account - I will let you have the details upon request if this is easier for you)

 

 

TIMING

 

The average time taken for a painting is between 4 to 10 weeks from agreed start.  Please allow enough time for me to paint the portrait - and of course it depends upon how busy I am - but I will do all I can to assist in this respect.

 

PHOTOS

 

Pets - I paint a portrait of the head and shoulders of your pet so it is important that the photo you provide is clear and precise. The best photos are taken in daylight (as flash photography distorts colour and animals, in general, do not like the flash).  The sun should be behind the person taking the photo and it should be taken at the same height as the subject.  It would help if you had a person next to you holding a favourite toy on your shoulder, so giving a slight angle rather than face on.  If the photo is to be taken indoors then it should be by a window, with the window behind you, in the same way as above.  It is good to take a few photos to send to me for clarity.

 

Landscapes and Sunsets - please let me have a few photos (if possible) of the subject and they should be as clear as possible.

 

 

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

As stated above I require a 50% deposit in the form of a cleared cheque before commencing any painting and the balance

(plus postage) upon completion prior to sending you the completed painting.

 

You may pay by BACS into my bank account - I will let you have the details upon request if this is easier for you.

 

I am unable to refund paintings that are personally and specifically designed for a customer.  I will let you have a copy of the finished painting and if there are any slight alterations to carry out before sending it I can carry these out for you.

 

In the unlikely event that your portrait gets damaged in the post please report it to the post office immediately. 

 

Please retain all packaging and also let me know so we can agree the best solution.
