If you have something or someone special that you would like to have captured on canvas, Alison is always happy to consider requests for individual commissions.
The subject could be your home, your favourite view, your pet, or any other subject appropriate to Alison’s body of work. In addition to the subjects she is already well known for, Alison is also happy to undertake portrait commissions. If you would like to enquire about a commission, please fill in the form below and Alison will respond.
Here are a few examples of commissioned subjects, please click on the thumbnails to see full size image and details…
In most cases, ideally Alison will use her own photographs in combination with her sketches and her memories of experiencing/meeting the subject first hand, so she can capture the subject’s personality. However, if you have a photograph that you would like Alison to consider, please send it to us and she will advise.
Commissions can take some time complete, at most times Alison has a waiting list, and an oil painting will usually take longer than a charcoal. If you have a completion date in mind for a special event, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss.
Commission Example - Llangwm Cap
Two-time World Sheepdog Trials Champion Aled Owen asked Alison to paint one of his dogs, Llangwm Cap, who he won the Welsh National Championships with in 2015 and 2018. Alison visited Aled’s farm to see Cap at work with the sheep, and gather source material for the painting.
Following her visit, Alison prepared three loose compositional sketches so that Aled could choose Cap’s pose for the painting - he choose number 3 as it captured Cap’s concentration when working the sheep.
