How to commission a painting

You may wish to commission a painting or a limited edition print - With us it generally works something like this:
  • A client expresses an interest in a commission - for instance they may want a portrait painting, an interpretive painting or drawing in the manner of a favourite artist or a landscape.
  • Firstly we will set up a consultation on site - it is a good idea to have your own personal overview of style and content but you don't have to be too specific at this stage because you will be working in collaboration with the artist.
  • Ideas for the painting, its costing, the layout and style will develop during the initial consultation process and will be made available to be viewed in the studios or as high resolution photographs online.
  • After the first meeting we will come up with some ideas and a rough plan for the painting.
  • At no stage will the payment system be unclear or woolly - whatever is agreed verbally will be confirmed in writing.
  • We have the experience to work within deadlines; when everything has been agreed, a date will be set for the completion of your painting.
  • The content and style of the painting will be taken from a number of initial reference points - the painting will most likely be referenced obliquely to a particular artist who is admired by both you and the painter.
  • During the consultation process you are encouraged to seek out your own reference points to be discussed with the artist.
  • Good paintings are achieved from working in the studio. Paddy Hamilton rarely paints on location but prefers to take all points of reference back to the studio and paint.
  • If you require a frame for your painting - this is separate to the painting commission. You may decide to hang the painting as is, on its stretcher - or you may decide to have the painting framed - whatever your requirements we will work with you to ensure a satisfactory outcome.
