COMMISSION A PAINTING
A number of my still life food paintings, tulip paintings and general still life paintings are commissioned by private clients. I love to work with clients who wish to commission a painting, as it means I can work closely with the client to decide on the subject matter, size of painting and where they plan to hang it. The finished painting often contains something very personal. I also work with art consultants and interior designers.
If you have a space within your kitchen, dining room, library or other space where you would like to have a unique Dutch still life painting to admire, or if you wish to make a gift to a loved one please contact me to discuss how I can help.
The process of commissioning a painting
Subject matter, size, surface (support) and ‘feel’ of the painting are discussed after which I prepare sketches for review and feedback. Once the design has been approved, a 30% non-refundable deposit is paid and the painting is started. Regular updates are sent by email. I like to, when sending updates, explain my process and techniques to provide insight in the centuries’-old classical painting method I use. When complete, the painting is shipped or hand-delivered.
I advise on and can arrange framing if required.
