How to Commission the Artist
**Please note that at present Ian is not taking on any more commissioned work.**
“My order book is full for the next few years so taking on more work has been put on hold.”
Most commissions are motoring based and will recall a favourite car or bike, or memorable motoring adventure or fantasy.
All I need is a photo of the car, bike or subject, a suggestion of the background you’d like, or an idea of how you might like your finished painting to look.
( or you can of course leave this bit to me ! ).
I ask for a small 10% deposit, with your order.
I will give you an idea of the time scale as there is a waiting list for my paintings
I will call you when your painting is finished to ask for full payment..I then send your painting to you..If you are not completely satisfied I will give you a refund.

Price Variations :
There are no hidden extras .
My prices include a Frame and P&P in UK mainland
(Postage to other Countries will cost extra)
The only time the price may differ from the above is;-
When more Cars, the House, Spouse, Children, pets etc. are wanted too
It has been expected of me in the past to include all of these things and more for the initial price of the painting. I am happy to include most things in a painting but obviously at an extra cost.
When there is to be more than one prominent subject in the painting ;-
There is an additional charge of 25%(approx) for one more subject,.
e.g.. An Extra Vehicle
This would take the price of a 12″ x 16″ painting at the initial price of £695 to £865
And there is an addition charge of 50%(approx) for two more subjects,
e.g.. Extra Vehicle and House
House and Person
House and Animal
So therefore there is an additional charge of 75%(approx) for three more, and so on and so forth.
If all the talk of percentages and extra costs has completely blown your mind and left you confused , call me…
Please feel free to contact me with your ideas, we can chat about them,
and I can confirm a definite quote with no obligation to go any further.
