Portrait Artist recommendation?

Postby abbevillenewbie » Tue Apr 26, 2016 1:18 pm

Hi
I would LOVE some help and advice. I really want to get either a drawing or watercolour of my little boy done as a special wedding anniversary present for my husband. I don't know where to start! Can anyone please make a recommendation - ideally not costing thousands....
Thanks so much in advance

Hello Abbevillenewbie,

I draw pencil portraits of children from photos. I've attached a couple of commissions and you can find more details and a gallery of some of my work here:

Do shout if you have any questions!

I would totally recommend Tess Greig who is local and very talented. Tess did a portrait of our little one and we were blown away by the detail.
She has a Facebook page and also a website http://www.tessgreig.co.uk

I can highly recommend Jane Darbyshire who has posted above.

She drew my two boys for a similar present and they were incredible! She totally captured the personalities of the boys.

V reasonably priced and a local mum too, which is always nice!

I can thoroughly recommend Matt Ray. He made some beautiful portraits of our children, for a big anniversary!

Lovely to deal with; and a local Dad, too!

I highly recommend Becka Belcher (www.beckabelcher.com). She does wonderful contemporary portraits and is a local mum as well!

She is an extremely accomplished artist and does gorgeous non-portrait work too. See examples of her non-portrait works here: www.rebeccaivatts.com.

Hi, I can advise from personal experience. I wanted an unusual portrait. Found a good site there is a normal price for diamond painting. Excellent and quality work. I was satisfied)
