If you would like a non-committal quote regarding commissioning a drawing or a painting or just more information about future projects, feel free to drop me a line. I consider commissions in all subjects.
I charge £15 an hour with a £15 non-refundable deposit for tuition.
For pieces such as a drawing or painting of: your house / family member / pet, etc., are individually priced after a discussion of what you would like and according to what medium is to be used...such as Oil paints, Pastels, Pen and Ink, etc., everything no matter how quirky considered!
