I AM HAPPY TO ARRANGE A PAYMENT PLAN TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS

 

 

 

 

I have been creating these pieces for thirty years, and I understand that commissioning artwork such as this is both deeply personal and emotional. I work closely with all my clients to ensure that I understand exactly what you want and I will endeavor to create something that you will be delighted with. Each piece is lovingly hand painted with great attention to detail using the finest materials, and takes a great many hours to complete. I will send you photos as the painting progresses so that you can be a part of the creative process and watch your artwork take shape. In this digital age, a hand painted piece of original art such as this, is a true treasure; one that can be passed on to your children for generations to come.

Pergamenata paper

The standard paper that I use is 230gsm pergamenata and is included in the price.

The Italian-made Pergamenata Parchment is an imitation parchment. It is a translucent 100% sulphite, neutral pH paper, with the crisp snap, mottled look and hard feel you would expect from an actual sheet of animal parchment. Available in antique white or natural cream.

Paint

I use the finest quality gouache , either Winsor & Newton or Schminke. Where possible I always choose the most lightfast colours.
