Commissioned Portraits

I often get asked to do portraits of people to be painted from a photograph. This is a request that I am happy to fulfill provided that I am given a good clear photograph of the subject. I prefer not to paint from studio shots as the lighting is usually too stark and leaves very few shadows which are what help to create a more realistic painting. I do make the exception though. The photograph must preferably be in a high resolution - large dimensions.

I like to adjust the colours and background in the painting to ensure a good composition and to make sure that your painting is as original as possible.

Portrait commission prices start from R2000.00. The price increases with size and number of subjects in the painting. Please email your request along with your photograph to me and I will respond with a quotation and if necessary a few variations on sizes and prices.

I also do pencil portraits from size A4. Please contact me for a quote.
