Portraits and paintings to own and cherish
About my portraits, illustrations and paintings
I also do portraits, paintings and illustrations in a variety of media including oil paints, coloured crayon, watercolour, black ink and pencil. I work from photos that I take (if you live near me), or from photos you supply. I will guide you through the reference material I will need to get the best results.
My portraits become treasured heirlooms and are owned for life as a happy memory of children or pets from times past. Getting an excellent likeness is a priority for me and I strive to capture the person or pet in a relaxed and complementary pose and expression that captures their personality.

The commissioning process
Step one. Once you have made contact with me I will carefully help you select a suitable photo for me to get the best possible result you want for your portrait or painting of 'the subject' for my reference. If possible I can come and visit you to take the photos myself.
Step two. I will email a scan of the drawing for you to see progress for you to approve. At this stage I ask for the payment by cheque before I finish the piece.
Step three. I will supply you with the finished portrait or painting by post or by hand delivery and send a scan of the painting for your approval.
Please allow a suitable time for me to complete your drawing or painting, usually this is 2-3 weeks.

What some of my clients have said
"We have chosen our two favourite pictures and look forward to getting them framed and hung up. Rest assured we will enjoy looking at them, particularly knowing the artist and their history" Sara and Richard, London
"Thank you Paul for the super portrait. My brother was staying with us when the portrait arrived, he was so delighted and so anxious to show his family and friends he took it with him saving us the cost of the framing job! If I should win the lottery there will be lots more commissions coming your way." John and Louise, Ottery St. Mary, Devon.
