I regularly have customers contact me to Commission a Painting. I was recently commissioned to paint an original watercolour by a client for her husbands 50th birthday present of Rockcliffe in Dumfriesshire. It’s a place that holds particularly fond memories for them as a family. Fortunately I had been to exactly the same spot last year with my wife, daughter and grandchildren and I had actually painted a small sketchbook study of the bay and taken some suitable photographs which I could work from.
It made me realise just how easy it is to Commission a Painting, so to re-enforce the process on how to go about the initial discussions I’ve had a short video filmed by Gavin Dowd of Word Out Media. Follow the link to watch the video.
