The process of commissioning an original piece of artwork is extremely straightforward and a very interactive and enjoyable process. Simply contact Andrew with your requirements and he will confirm costs and timescales etc.

Once agreed, Andrew will produce an initial sketch for consultation and discussion, to ensure your requirements have been interpretted correctly. Any feedback or changes can then be made before the detailed work starts. During the commission, Andrew will then keep you updated with a number of progress images so that you can see how your commissioned artwork develops. If there is anything that you don't like, Andrew can incorporate adjustments as the picture develops.

If required, your unique piece of art can be framed or mounted to Andrew's exacting standards, before it is dispatched to you, making the whole process hassle free.

Prices for an unframed A3 sized drawing on heavyweight art paper start at just £195.00 +p&p, whilst an unframed original oil painting on stretched canvas measuring approximately 20"x16" start from £495.00 +p&p. Sizes and costs vary, so do get in touch to discuss your own requirements.
