I accept commission work for landscapes, seascapes and other subjects. If interested please contact me to discuss your needs.
All commissions will be painted in oil on either canvas or linen that can be stretched, on board or loose, depending on your situation.
You can choose your own image to work from or else I can create a painting according to your likes and the size you want it. You can also get some ideas by going to my galleries.
The commission process starts by first discussing your needs and concept of the painting. This will include the size, colour scheme and format of the painting. A number of sketches and a colour study will be prepared for most artworks. Once we agree on the basics and price, a 50% deposit will need to be paid before starting the work.
Prices and Timeframe Price of commission is determined by the size of the painting. If a frame is required it is not included in the initial price as indicated below. Any shipping expenses are also additional to the prices below and these will depend on the courier used at time of shipment.
Commissions are scheduled on a first come first served basis so please contact me early if you need the painting by a specific date. Turnaround time is determined by the size and complexity of the painting and it can vary between 4 weeks (smaller paintings) and 6 months (for big paintings).
"Thank you Chris it is amazing we love it Soo much. We set it up a bit higher than advised because the little man runs along the couch but still makes the house a lot brighter and is the talk of the house now. I'm so stoked with choosing you as the artist I don't think anyone would have done a better job so thank you once again".-Kyle
"We would just like to thank Chris for the amazing painting we commissioned. He spent the time to get to know us and the landscape we wanted painted to ensure it was everything we dreamed of. Through the whole process Chris kept us up to date continually sending photos of his progress. When he delivered the painting to our front door, we were absolutely blown away by the detail, colours, and absolute overall beauty of it. In the photos it looked amazing but it was nothing compared to viewing it in real life. We cannot recommend Chris highly enough. This painting has exceed all expectations." - Melinda & Michael
"I wanted a special painting for a gift for someone who misses his beautiful homeland. I did choose a stunning natural park in Venezuela and sent several pictures to Chris. Chris created his own version of the park combining several landmarks. After he drew several drafts he asked me for my opinion or if I wished to change or add something. It was really beautiful but as I told him it is more beautiful when you see it directly. The details, colors, shadows seems that it was painted directly on the spot." - Sandra B.
"To me Chris' landscapes are very impressive, beautiful colours and well painted. I asked Chris to do a portrait of my parents as a birthday gift. I was very pleased and happy when I received the portrait. Even though Chris only had a few pictures to work from, he managed to capture the essence of my parents which he transformed into a beautiful painting". - Wei Li
