Where possible the artist prefers to paint at least some of the portrait from life, aided by his own photographs taken at sittings.

However, the artist can work from supplied photographs when working from life isn’t possible such as posthumous portraits or paintings as a surprise gift. If you would like a quote for a painting based on your own photograph then please don’t hesitate to email it to the artist and he will be happy to advise on whether he can paint from it.
