House Portraits – The perfect gift from £250
If you are thinking of commissioning a House Portrait for yourself or for a unique and special gift, here is all the information you need. Including some examples, the process, prices and testimonials.
House Portrait Commissions
My passion is drawing and painting buildings, especially houses. I bring them to life and my interpretation encapsulates the life of the house, the internal and external environments of past and present.
How do we start?
If you live in Brighton or the surrounding area, we can meet to discuss your requirements. If you live further afield, you can send me clear photos of the building, and I am happy to finalise the commission by email or by phone.
You can submit all the requirements here and I will then contact you to discuss all the details.
It’s all in the detail
Every picture tells a story and I like to suggest we include the little details. Family pets, cars, trees and bushes, positioned within the painting can personalise the scene and add untold sentimental value.
Included in my pricing is an email of a preliminary sketch of the commission, for you to make any amendments to the picture, before the final work is completed. Once you have approved the preliminary sketch, I will produce the final picture to your specification and email the artwork to you for your approval. Examples below.
Above, Wickham House Brighton. The client wanted me to focus on the main entrance of the house and the plants in front. Which required me to move the tree on the left. Another tree was placed on the right, to screen out the neighbouring property. I also reduced the size of the fountain in the foreground to lessen its impact on the painting. Personally speaking some illustrated activity on the driveway would zing up this commission!
Quarter Imperial – £250 (approx 28x38cm)

The speciality paper I use comes in Imperial sizes but I have shown the centimetre and approximate standard paper size as a guide.
