Whether you'd like to commission a specific new work or buy an original from my gallery, contact me to discuss how I can help.

Drawings

I always have a range of original drawings for sale, and I am also available for commissions.

For striking pictures of unrivalled boldness or unparalleled subtlety, the term 'drawings' covers a huge range of styles.

The great strength of pen-and-ink pictures lies in the strong lines that the style affords, which can be used for extremely detailed depictions or to make bold statements. I see this style as being especially good at capturing and conveying a subject with clarity.

Adding colour to pen-and-ink work can perhaps best be thought of as a half-way house between a purely pen-and-ink work and an oil painting. The addition of colour dramatically increases the scope for a more realistic picture and gives opportunities for a greater range of statements.

To some extent in contrast to pen-and-ink, graphite or carbon pencil pictures can be very warm even though they are monochromatic, and drawings of this type have a superb ability to communicate shape and form in many different styles.

Gallery / Work for sale

I am very flexible in my work but, of course, I do have a style! Please browse my Gallery for examples.

The original pen-and-ink and graphite/carbon pencil drawings that I currently have for sale are all on show in my Shop. Prices start at just £80.00 (plus P&P at cost).

Commissioning A Drawing:

The most important stage of any commission is for us to talk over what you want the picture to achieve for you.

In the first instance, email me to outline the picture you are thinking about and from there we can arrange to talk to see how your ideas might be made into reality. Some things to bear in mind:

  • the prices of commissions do not vary hugely from buying originals from my gallery. No deposit is required. If you are not happy with the final picture then you do not have to buy it.
  • whether you just have mental image of a picture or if you have a photo that you would like interpreting, I will work with you to bring your ideas to life.
  • the size of the picture is very much to suit you and the colour-range, too, can be specified (to fit in with an existing decor, for example).
  • the cost depends on the size and the complexity of the subject and I will agree this with you beforehand. Prices for a commission start from just £80.
