If would like to contact the artist about commissioning a portrait, please read the information on canvas size/aspect, artist fees and his painting process below, then fill out the simple inquiry form at the bottom of the page.
The artist mostly works in standard canvas sizes so the cost and timeframe will be dependant on which size you choose (the standard stretched canvas size is 24 x 24 inches).
AVAILABLE CANVAS SIZES (in inches):
16 x 16
Portrait or Landscape (rectangular)
16 x 20
NOTE: These larger, non-standard sizes like panorama are available, and can be qouted by the artist.
These are a guide only, and based on delivery of a one-off, mixed-media original portrait painting, which will be finished in oils on a high quality 24 x 24 stretched canvas:
FEES DO NOT INCLUDE: Framing, Travelling outside of Sydney, or Shipping expenses.
After the initial meeting, A signed contract with a deposit of 50% is due upon acceptance of the quote. In most cases, Daniel will then make a date & time to travel to your location, and he will take numerous digital photographs of the sitter, and may also do a quick live pencil sketch. The artist will then complete the painting in his studio. Please click on a thumbnail below for a breakdown of Daniel's painting process:

If the sitter has the time, Daniel may come back for a short two hour sitting to finish the painting. Once the painting is finished, the remaining 50% will be due, and the final portrait will be delivered.
