I now take commissions. These are usually from  photographs and some recent requests have been for painting of buildings or places that mean something special to the the purchaser and/or their family but at a very reasonable price (under £100, unframed). Request have come from the other side of the world, from countries in Europe, or from a just a few streets away from where I live! I’ve done something a little extra by request, such as setting the painting at a particular season, or adding something personal to the image. The buyers have been very pleased – which brings a lot of satisfaction to me as well a giving a focus for my work. Here are some examples of paintings, done from photos, in and around the Highgate area:
