I generally work from photographs. If you don't have a favourite photo I could make arrangements to take some myself. The paintings take a little time to complete. This partly depends on the size of the work and on how busy I am at the time. The number of people in the painting could affect the cost too. I use various mediums when painting but my favourite is oil onto canvas. If you have any questions relating to organising a painting as a gift or for a family member or friend then please get in touch via the contact me page.
