I love commissions, they can be a challenge but that is what I love! Here area a few of the commissions that I have completed, I like to communicate all the way thru with regular updates and photos of the progress .
original paintings commissioned of Arran and scottish landscapes. Whiting Bay From The Giants Graves, Arran. the clients had previously commissioned the opposite view from the Sandbraes to Whiting Bay and this painting was a surprise to be hung next to it.
This Scottish original painting was commissioned for a wedding here on Arran. The Special Day, Shiskine, Arran. Marriage in Shiskine church, the drive to the Kinloch for the reception and Machrie Bay, a favourite place, were all included in this commission
original paintings commissioned of Arran and scottish landscapes. Rua Reidh Lighthouse, Wester Ross. A favourite holiday destination for the clients. There were certain buildings and landmarks that are highlighted in the painting which are of particularly special for the couple.
Original paintings commissioned of Arran and Scottish landscapes. Old Pier Cafe Lamlash Arran. This was painted to be used as sign and marketing material for the popular cafe. Rather than concentrating on the cafe they wanted the warm sense of community to come out in the work. They make the most scrummy cakes!
The Douglas, Brodick, Arran. This wasn't a commission but I painted it and I loaned it to The Douglas to hang in the reception area, they immediately bought it and commission cards for their guests too.
Number 11, 12 Apostles, Catacol, Arran number 11 was the house that my clients family were moved to in the Clearances but they didn't move in, they lived under the rowing boat for a year before the weather forced them into the house!
