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!
