The ultimate aim of any aviation art collector must be to commission an
original painting of their own. The process of commissioning, from
coming up with the original ideas to receiving the finished painting is
an exciting and fascinating process.
My commission rates include the preparation of 3 thumbnail preliminary
sketches and a reasonable amount of research. If you would like more
in-depth research or a small painted sketch after the pencil sketches
then please let me know.
It's important to point out that as
I'm an independent artist, (ie. not tied to any agent or publisher), my
prices are at least 50% lower than an equivalent artist commissioned
through a third party. Publishers, agents and galleries usually add on
at least 100% to the cost of a commission, something which I've never
been keen to get involved with for obvious reasons!
