Commissioning a Portrait

The first step is to select a photo, one where the subject is large, well lit and in focus is better and will make for a good portrait. If you have a selection of pictures, let me know and I will help pick the most suitable one. Once you've selected a photo we can then discuss the best way to complete the commission - composition, size, anticipated completion date and cost.

Once I have completed your pencil portrait I will contact you. I'll also send you a scanned iamge of the finished piece, so you can assess it. If you're happy to proceed with the purchase, I will request payment. This can done via cheque or paypal to my email address (given out on completion).

Your portrait will be sent via Royal Mail and packaged appropiately to avoid any damage in transit.


I charge the following for portraits:
A4: 120
A3: 160
A2: 200

Prices exclude shipping - this will be added to the price after completion. For customers in the UK portraits are sent using Royal Mail, with proof of posting. If you require any other service offered by Royal Mail, please contact me. For overseas customers portraits will be sent via Royal Mail Airmail.
