How to commission an artist

Have you got a special view in mind that you'd love to have on your wall or give as a special gift? Do you require a more abstract piece with just that exact shade of blue or pink in it to compliment the rest of the room it will be on display in?. Or maybe you have seen a painting in the Gallery in the past that you have loved but have missed your chance to buy and would love something similar?

Well commissions are a surpringly easy way to get exactly what you would like. If you have a particular view in mind then take a look at the artists work on this website or in the Gallery to choose an artists style that you particularly like. Once you have chosen an artist the next step is to have a chat with us. The majority of our artists are more than happy to do commissions and through the Gallery will work with you to capture the image you are thinking off. Time of day, weather, view, size etc we help you decide. 

If you missed a piece that has been in the Gallery but sold then we will work with you and the artist to get a similar painting. We sell original paintings rather than prints so the picture will of course not be exactly the same. However, do you really want an exact replica of a painting someone already has? Original art is just that original and one off. Getting a Commission done is exciting and will give you a special connection to the piece that will hang on your wall, for you enjoy, for years to come. 

In both cases the only thing you have to consider is the time it will take to do the piece. If it is for yourself and you are just wanting that perfect painting and you are happy to wait that is fine. If it is for a special occasion for a friend or family member please do give us as much advance notice as possible as we do not want to rush something that you have put so much thought into.

I do hope this has convinced you that a commission might be the right choice for you and if you have any more questions please do not hesitate to contact the Gallery as we are more than happy to help.
