It has been a very busy time in the studio for me the last 3 months - this is the time Commissions start coming in for Christmas gifts and so apologise that there has been no new posts recently on my News page. I was very lucky to receive many queries regarding Pet portraits as Xmas gifts and it was sad that I was not able to take on every one, however for those I was able to undertake, I hope the recipient's loved their portraits. Above are the final pastel paintings as well as showing them all framed up.
Portraits are offered with or without detailed backgrounds and can be framed with or without mounts - as you can see here, different options give different results but each worked perfectly. Smaller sized portraits can also be framed and posted directly out to you with P & P prices starting from around £25 extra.
Commission bookings are now available for 2016 - if you wish to find out more, take a look at my COMMISSIONS page.
Wishing you all the very best for 2016!
Recently I was contacted by a lady who was looking to Commission a Pet portrait for a surprise birthday Gift. Although many of my portraits are purchased for special events such as Birthdays and Christmas, the Birthday was the following week and she asked if it was possible to complete in such a short space of time. A portrait normally takes 3 - 4 weeks for completion (including framing) but I promised to do what I could and spent a few full days at the Easel which are normally broken up with other business related work in between to ensure the portrait is viewed regularly with 'fresh' eyes.
I am always willing to help wherever I can but know that you can always purchase a Gift Voucher for the special day instead, this way the receiver can choose their favourite photograph for the portrait and see it come together via this 'News' page which can be very enjoyable for them.

Now Christmas is out of the way, John can finally show you what pieces he has been working on over December. Each portrait has been created on Velour, as is most of his works, this helps to create the superb fur effects in each of his portraits and John is meticulous to detail, spending many hours on each portrait ensuring he captures the likeness in every painting . Now Christmas has been and gone and we are moving into the New Year, maybe you are thinking about commissioning a portrait from John? Please take a look at the Commissions page to find out more or you can book yours via the Booking Form on our Contact page. Sending you Best Wishes for 2014!
