Commission a Painting by Fine Artist Gary Armer

Beautiful paintings painted from life or photographs.

Why Commission an Oil Painting?

A painting is timeless. A piece of fine art that is uniquely yours, or a gift to be enjoyed for generations. It can record a special place, capture the beauty of a sitter or celebrate the life of a loved one.

Great paintings capture the true likeness of a subject, in a way that portrays the unique details and features that make a person, pet or place special. From your initial enquiry to the final paint stroke, celebrating the true spirit of the subject is at the heart of my work.

I’m a contemporary realist painter and paint in a traditional, representational style. I can capture the essence of a person, pet or place with energetic alla prima portraits or paint in an academic style to bring a highly detailed and refined finish to a painting.

I complete commissions of a variety of subject matter including;

  • portraits
  • house and other building portraits
  • pet portraits
  • landscapes
  • townscapes
  • still life

I enjoy painting entirely from life using traditional and classical painting techniques but can also work from photographs if the piece is a surprise gift or sittings aren’t possible. My paintings are a collaborative process and as a client or sitter your comments and feedback are key as the work develops.

    “Within each painting I strive to capture not just the subject’s appearance but the unique details and features that make the person or place special.”

       “…I’m absolutely delighted with the interpretation and feeling you have created in minute detail in the painting… the painting is going to be a wonderful memory of my year in office but it is also something we will enjoy for a long time to come for the workmanship and likeness it represents.”

      Mr Sam Rayner, High Sheriff of Cumbria
