William and his Gramps 2020
A commissioned portrait of my neighbour's child and grandfather, as a special birthday gift. He said "I wish I could paint like that!".
Oil on panel

I was commissioned by a neighbour to paint this from photo references (which I find difficult) for a big birthday present. Being a neighbour and my first real commission, I did this for a low fee, but would need payment to cover 2 days minimum for other portraits. I would expect to be paid at the same rate as your plumber/electrician/decorator, though the skill levels and training are probably greater for a painter.
I would also be open to paint pet portraits either as drawings, pastel paintings, acrylics or oils by request.
