Photographs are my points of reference, but my aim is not just to copy a photo. Art is about creativity. I create a live image that it can’t be seen in a mere photo. My art aims at depicting the inner soul and deep feeling in humanity that is not easy to express using words.

Commissions

 

Contact the artist via Keith McFarlane (Portraits Africa)at editor@negativeentropy.net who will provide an introduction. Artist and buyer are free to negotiate on both subject and price. While the artist has provided a guide-price or price indication, the first step in any commission is that artist and buyer agree the price, size, subject and materials of the composition and its delivery date. Portraits Africa will then request the agreed commission fee from the buyer, and on receipt of that fee will advise the artist to start work. The fee will not be released to the artist until the work has been completed and delivered to the buyer. Should a dispute arise between artist and buyer, it is Portraits Africa that will adjudicate. For the service prospectus, Terms & Conditions, see Commissioning a Portrait.

Notes

 

  1. These are guide prices. They are not binding on the artist, but are intended to set the buyer’s expectations prior to the artist being contacted.
  2. Prices will vary with the materials used, with the number of subjects (complexity) and with the overall size.
  3. Prices do not include shipping, packing, framing or insurance costs. These should be itemised separately and the total price agreed up-front.
  4. Portraits Africa will not involve itself in the matter of the commission price. The service offered relates only to the delivery of the finished portrait and to assuring the quality of the work produced.
