Here are just a few examples of my work using oils and pastels on canvas. This is the standard that you can expect providing that you can supply me with a high resolution photograph of the subject. The higher the resolution the better as that will allow me to zoom in to areas of the image and ensure that I pick up all of the detail. Scroll down for sizes and prices. 
Prices: The sizes below are intended as an indicative guide for my oil and acrylic portraits. Other sizes are available and I will be happy to give you a quotation. Note that prices do not include frames.

Canvases are painted round the edges and can be hung without frames. Panels are standard sizes and frames can be purchased from any good supplier.

Photography Tips:

The quality of the photograph is vital. The clearer and sharper the photograph, the better the final product.

Here are some tips to providing the best possible photograph for your portrait.

It is always best to take photographs outside on a bright or slightly cloudy day. If  this cannot be done then near a window or a source of natural light is a        good alternative Try to avoid using the flash.

Focus particularly on the eyes and as much as possible fill the frame with your subject image.

Photograph your subject at their level rather than looking down or up at them to avoid image distortion.

If your subject is a pet try to distract your pet with a treat or a toy to get them to look in the right direction.
