• Commission your own painting

    Stephen accepts commissions for paintings and drawings. If you can't find what you are looking for in the gallery, this can be a great solution for that special gift. You can commission a painting or drawing to your very own specifications – it may be a family portrait, a favourite scene, the old homestead – whatever your requirements and budget Stephen will be delighted to discuss and advise at no obligation. He can work from photos or a video of the scene you would like painted. Contact Stephen to discuss various aspects of your idea including style, size and any time restraints you may have if the painting is to be a gift for a special occasion.
  • How to Commission a Portrait

    Stephen has a special interest in portraiture and accepts commissions for portraits which he will undertake in a variety of media to suit the client. The portrait can be undertaken in pencil, watercolour, acrylic or mixed media and the price will depend on the technique chosen by the client.  Stephen is happy to work from live sittings or photographs or a combination of both. If the portrait is to be based on a photo, it is very important that you, as the client, are happy with the photo of the subject. Where more than one subject is to be portrayed in the painting, for example in a family portrait, separate photos of the different subjects may be supplied. Photos supplied must be of a high resolution. Where suitable photos are not available Stephen is happy to take photos of the subject himself.
