Watercolour Commissions

I take watercolour commissions, so if you're struggling to think of a special gift for someone who has everything, this is ideal for you! If it's a wedding gift, why not get a painting of the ceremony venue or the reception? Maybe there is a place which has special meaning to the recipient?

The process is simple. I paint from a photograph which I can source or you can provide. If there are some options then I may make a few sketches from you to choose from. I will draw out the sketch and send you a progress picture. Then I'll send you a picture of the finished painting for approval. Once you have approved it, I will get it mounted (unless it is the card option which comes with an envelope).

Payment is half up front, non-refundable retainer and balance on completion.


10x8 painting in a 14x12 mount £55
12x8 painting in a 16x12 mount £72
8x6 painting as a 10x8 card £30

If you'd like your painting framed, I can give you a quote. It usually takes 1-2 weeks to complete a commission.

To commission a painting please ring me on 0191 2864014 or email gillian@gilliancrossx.art
