Lorna's Arranmore


A commissioned painting is a painting made specifically for you. It’s something extra special, that you will have forever.  It’s made with high-quality artists’ oil paints and typically on linen canvas. It is a complete journey in making, that you will have and enjoy for a lifetime.

Progress of a painting commission


The Brief – send me an outline of what you are looking for in your commission; i.e. size, subject matter, and include as many good quality reference photos as you can.  I can edit or combine images on request. If its a pet portrait, what sort of background would you like?

Logistics – Timescale, is this work a present for a special event? A custom painting can be a unique gift for a loved one. I will need to know special dates well in advance so there is plenty of time for the work to thoroughly dry before it is packed and shipped.

Deposit – I will need a deposit usually £100, this is to cover the materials and any design work, such as sketches or other mockups.

Final review – You will be sent images of the final painting. I finish my work by painting a neutral colour around the edges so the painting is ready to hang. Your work will be shipped and a tracking number provided.

That’s it. Sit back and admire your painting for years to come.
