Garry came into the world in 1953 at Dandenong Victoria Australia.
He has always had an affiliation for the Arts, and an early age entered many art competitions, and usually won the division he chose to enter. He spent a few years overseas, mainly in the UK where he painted a few wall murals. His sketches and paintings from those years, are lost somewhere in Europe, and sadly no records
The Easy Steps you need to take, when Commissioning any Original Oil Painting.
Gone are the days when you needed to have considerable wealth behind you, to even consider having a piece of Art Commissioned on your behalf.
Good quality portraits were priced at $2,500 a decade ago, a worth that has since multiplied 4 fold.
Simple steps from original concept through to the completion of your artwork,
The customer along with your chosen artist interact with each other to create a concept towards reality. No matter whether you might be commissioning a sizeable or perhaps a small, public or personal painting, the procedure stays exactly the same. These are typically the actual simple steps you are likely to adhere to whenever you commission a painting. Settlement arrangements can vary greatly amongst artists, therefore make sure you make inquiries.
I’m a stickler for fine detail, and pride myself on bringing the canvas or linen to life with your pets image on it.
If I’m to be painting from a photo, it is important to send me the highest detail image you have taken, with good lighting.
When I paint a commission piece, I always do my best to catch your personal pets features, but this can be difficult if you supply me with a low detail image of a small distant pet in the distance, and this is the only photograph I have to work with.
If it’s possible, I do appreciate several photos, so I can get a feel for your pet.
Please Email Me, and I'll be happy to talk you through the process of getting your Portrait immortalized as an oil painting.
A Commission Portrait Oil Painting can also be created directly from almost any photograph if you wish. However, I will need a good quality photo in order to do this for you.
There are Many different sizes available both in Linen and Canvas to choose from.

I also have a selection of Raw Canvas and Belgian Linen on rolls, that I can cut and stretch to size for you, if you want a non standard sized oil painting.
