Why have a Private Commission?
Commissioning a painting of your home can capture wonderful memories, creating a time capsule and ever lasting reminder of good times shared.
It doesn’t have to be your home it could be a wedding present or a gift for a friend – a place that has particular significance for them.
You may also have a favourite holiday destination, a building you love, the church where you were married.
What do you get?
You will receive the original hand painted artwork in fine line ink and watercolour of your chosen building. Should you choose, you can also order additional fine art prints (with your own selection of limited editions numbers all – hand signed by the artist) and greeting cards.
A wonderful way to stay in touch with family and friends.
How does it work?
To create an artwork we start with an image (a photograph) either supplied by you or taken by us. We may need several photographs from different angles, especially if you are wanting articles removing (such as trees, fences or cars) so that we may see the detail behind.
We will consult with you on what items should be removed (such as spotlights, cables or alarm panels), and what could be enhanced (such as flower baskets or paintwork).
A full pencil sketch is created of the subject and surrounding detail.
We will then create a fine line ink artwork over the loose pencil sketch. This is where the details of the subject and surrounding really come to life. Due to the complexity of some of the subjects this line work can take a long time to create, especially with some detail and ornate craftsmanship of some buildings.
The fine line ink artwork is then finished in watercolour, with an emphasis on the subject and leaving the surrounding areas as line work, enhancing colours and detail that we see in the subject, pulling the piece together.
What else can we do for you?
- Subject photography
- High resolution scans of the mono artwork (fine line ink only)
- High resolution scan of the finished artwork
- Artwork set up as greeting card
- Limited Edition fine art prints for family or friends

Example of a private commission:
A home in Great Malvern
The client wanted a commission of their very first home together, as a surprise for her husband. She asked us to secretly take photos of the property, we discussed what was to be removed and enhanced and the colour of mount she wanted.
The normal bold colours Jilly uses being toned down to pastels to suit the space it was going to be hung in.
This was followed up by 2 more commissions of their homes, including the one they have just moved into, as a triptych on the wall of their newly decorated dining room.
