Commissions

Considering your own commissioned painting? You’ve come to the right place!

The easiest way to decide which style to go for is to look at my Instagram , have a mooch around this site for references and I’ve included some examples if you scroll down on this page.

All prices include FREE UK delivery. International delivery is extra, charged at standard Royal Mail prices.

I do also do Digital Drawings in case that more modern approach is what you’re looking for, if it’s a re-work of an existing digital design then that is by far the cheapest option.


Watercolour / Acrylic Painting

Paintings on card or paper should always be framed, and as with any artwork it should be kept out of sunlight as much as possible.

If it’s in a well lit room then UV reflective glass is highly recommended.

I paint both watercolour and acrylics on professional quality watercolour paper.

Acrylics are also painted on card, canvas board or stretched canvas.

Stretched canvases don’t have to be framed, in fact they rarely are.

Canvas board is, as you’d imagine, a canvas surface stretched over a 2-3mm thick board so it will sit in most frames quite happily in place of the backing board. I also have them mounted directly on the wall using command strips as a good alternative.

One thing to consider on the cost is that frames aren’t free, so whilst a painting on stretched canvas may be more expensive the overall cost could be less.

As framing is a whole different ball game to making art it’s not a service I provide directly but there are very many options out there these days at much lower cost than used to be the case.

Examples to help you decide on the format

Whilst I am predominantly an automotive artist I can also undertake commissions for animal and pet portraits, keep scrolling down for those examples.

Currently I’m not taking on any people portraits. I will likely restart this at some point in the near future so please contact me if you’d like to be informed when.

Underneath these examples there are the obligatory testimonials from previous superb customers of excellent taste. Their words not mine.

A3 watercolour – allows a good level of detail

A5 acrylic, at this size it suits parts of cars rather than whole cars.

It’s too small for high detail but can still be fairly effective as with this painting.

Thank you very much for the drawings! It was delivered so fast. And I have no words to tell you how much I was surprised and happy with the extra drawings. 🙂 I like them all, thank you!

Kristina, Budapest, Hungary

I think when a drawing (or painting) is looking much better in real life than on the screen, it is something with the art. Your drawings are much more beautiful and full of life than on the screen.

Kristina, Budapest, Hungary

Received the artwork and I love it 😊 you are very talented. I’m going to take it to be framed today because I can’t wait to get it on the wall. Thank you so much Steve.
