Something one-of-a-kind

If you love details and realism then this artwork is your sort of thing!! There's a whole lot of love and time that goes into these pieces of art and I want them to be exactly what you want - and more!

Wildlife & bird graphite drawings
All commissions are graphite drawings.  (Oil paintings commissions will be available in the future - watch this space if you're interested!!)  No pet portraits - unless you have a particularly unusual pet or bird.  Let me know if you do and I'll consider it!

choosing your commissioned artwork

Photographs as reference

All drawings are created using reference photos (sometimes one, sometimes several).  

I am able to source photos that can be used - just let me know the animal or bird that you would like and whether full body or portrait. 

If you have a photo of your own that you would like drawn, it needs to be really, really good quality, with sharp details when you zoom in (particularly so if you would like a large drawing!).  

If you have a photo that was taken by someone else that you would like drawn, in order to respect the photographer's copyright you MUST ask them and get written permission from them for their photograph to be used as a reference for a drawing.  

Choose your size

The larger the piece of art, the more detail you'll get!

As a general guide:

~ A4 & 10" x 12" sizes are suitable for smaller birds and portraits

~ 12" x 14", A3, 14" x 16 & 16" x 20" sizes are suitable for full body drawings of many birds and other animals, as well as lovely detailed portraits

~ A2 size is the way to go for super, super detailed, either amazing portraits or full body drawings of animals and larger birds

Drawings are created as a single animal or bird subject with no background (or with a plain graphite shading as a backdrop).  If you would particularly like a background or more subjects in your artwork, please do let me know and I can give you a quote.

All drawings are sent to you without a mount or frame for peace of mind when shipping (when there's no frame in the package, there's no glass to break and potentially damage the original drawing!) This also means that you can choose mounts and frames to perfectly match your own decor - or to get something that just takes your fancy!  If you would like me to source mounts and frames for you, do let me know and I can find out prices and timescales for you.  There may also be be additional shipping charges for framed artwork.

A 35% deposit is required once the commission is agreed and before any work is undertaken. The remaining balance is due on completion of the artwork and before it is shipped out to you.

Updates will be provided by photograph as the drawing progresses and a final scan or photograph will be provided on completion and before the artwork is sent out.

Request a Wildlife or Bird Art Commission (or ask a question!)

Let me know what you're interested in and I'll get back to you!  Feel free to ask any questions you've got.  And don't worry, getting a price quote does not mean you're obliged to go ahead with the commission.  I'll only start work on the piece once we've agreed all the details and the deposit has been received.  **** N.B. Make sure to double-check your email address is typed correctly otherwise I won't be able to reach you :) ****
