Watercolour Painting Commissions:

For me no other medium can compete with the atmospheric, fresh, vibrant and lose style of a good watercolour. 

Now with over 30 years of experience, it was impressionistic watercolours that I first fell in love with.

If you would like to commission a watercolour painting from your own ideas and photographs, we can work together stage by stage ensuring you are more than happy with the results.

I can alter the composition, lighting etc to enhance your original picture and produce an heirloom to last generations.

These make beautiful unique custom handmade presents.

Drop me a line, with your commission ideas, details of size required & time frame for completion.

Whether it’s a portrait of your favourite pet, architecture, botanicals, hobbies, sports, surfing, skiing, gardening, golf, landscape, portraits, cats and dogs, houses, cars, wildlife, boats, a birth, wedding, family holidays or any hobby,  I would be happy to consider any of your ideas for a commission.

I use the finest ‘Archive Quality Cotton Watercolour paper and pigments that money can buy, to ensure your commission will last more than a lifetime.



Whatever your hobby I am more than happy to tackle any new commission subjects, your favourite car, yacht, motorbike,  your favourite golf course hole, cycling, fishing, and so on….

Andrew was amazing at organising everything on time, delivered an amazing painting as well as smaller draft versions of the painting he did which was amazing. Thank you very much for being able to do and deliver the painting in such short notice.
