Commissioning a Painting 

Commissions form a large part of my work. I enjoy working with clients in order to realise their visions and requirements which usually hold very personal significance to them. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to see people happy when I have managed to give form to their vision.

 

After having done many hundreds of commissioned works over the years, I have developed a system whereby I am able to discern just what it is that the client is after. It can sometimes take a while but it is well worth it.

 

 If you are interested in commissioning a painting please contact me.

 

Below are a few examples of works I have been commissioned to paint.

 

Home Again

Home Again

This painting is a commissioned piece and is the view from near the top of the Brynderwyn hills looking north. The title I have chosen for it is Home Again, in recognition of the feeling this site brings about in so many Northlanders.

Woolleys Bay

With this commissioned painting the time of day, extent of the view and other elements within were specifically requested because of their significance.

Mastery

Mastery

Gannets fascinate me not only because of their obvious mastery of the wind, weather and sea but also because of the apparent ease and grace with which they do it.

The Last of the Great Explorers

Portraiture is something that I especially enjoy doing, and to be able to have the opportunity to do a painting of a person with so much visible character was a real pleasure.

This painting is of the Yacht Yamaha NZ rounding Cape Horn during the 1994 Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race which it subsequently won.

I was commissioned to do this painting by a wife as a secret Birthday gift for her Husband. The location holds special meaning for them.
