Children and Family Portraits

A Unique Painting to Capture Your Loved Ones

Children love seeing themselves in portraits and will always appreciate that their family commissioned a special painting of them. Moreover this allows parents and grandparents to capture their children or grandchildren on canvas to create permanent memories. Simply supply me with photos of your child or children and I will create a unique portrait for you.  Ideally I work from one main photo for the pose with other supporting photographs for reference of colouring and textures etc.

Pricing and lead time….

I always quote for each commission individually as there are many variables to consider ie: size, level of detail, support and media (canvas/paper, paint/pen and ink) Prices start at just £150 for black and white, and typically a 30 cm x 30cm single portrait canvas is from £400.  Portraits require many, many hours of intense work and are normally delivered 4-6 weeks after ordering. However, if you have a shorter time frame I will do my best!

As you can see I usually keep the background simple, clean and in a colour that complements the subject so that there is little to distract from the portrait.  Reference photographs taken in warm toned natural light are preferable to harsh camera flash or indoor lighting .  Where possible, I am happy to take photographs which will translate into a beautiful painting, ask for more information.

If you would like to find out more, please contact me to book a portrait consultation to discuss possible styles, sizes, colours etc.
