Do you paint from photos?
Yes. Please make sure that the photos are of good quality, decent resolution and taken in good lighting. If the photos are not to the desired standard, I can propose to take your photos in a place and location preferred by you. It could be your home or a place you like. This is usually possible only if you are based in London.
Do you paint from live sitting?
If you choose to be painted from a live sitting, I usually do it in 2-3 sittings, with each sitting lasting for about 4 hours with a break. I am quite flexible in this regard and will try and make it as comfortable as possible for you. The sitting can be at any place preferred by you, in and around London. I would partly work on the painting in my studio as well.
If you are outside London, please feel free to discuss this with me.
