The Process of Ordering a Painting

Do you have a clear idea and photo material for you, then you need to supply the following information about your painting: The size you desire, the colour-scheme of the setting where it will hang, You information - telephone, email, postal. You need to state the date that you desire to receive the painting


60% deposit can be made once a clear agreement is reached on all details of the work.

Idea and photo material: work cannot be a guessing game, what the person in the photo looks like is what the painting will look like. Extra material can help - but the main photo material needs to be clear, of a good size and with good lighting. Be aware that with photos that are taken at night and with a flash, the colour, the character and the atmosphere might be missing.


A photo session can be done with a structured fee.

Head and shoulders:

Half Figure:

Full figure:

A second person can be included in within that range

The painting is painted on canvas stretched over a frame in the box style

Next Step: I prepare the changes, the format and the collages digitally in a photo program and once the final format is agreed upon, then the 60% deposit is to be paid

Finalising: A photo is emailed when the painting is finished and immediately when the final payment clears the paintings will be send off by courier or insured mail.

Shipping cost: The price of local mail is included in the price but overseas mail needs to be confirmed)
