Ben will produce outline sketches of composition options together with firm prices for a variety of sizes.
(These sketches are without obligation and are based on information supplied regarding the venue and room configuration together with images available online.) Once the composition and price have been agreed a deposit is payable to secure the booking. On the day, Ben will arrive to set up and start painting 2-3 hours before the event commences. He will then continue to add guests and detail throughout the proceedings. Ben will endeavour to complete as much of the painting as possible in situ, but will also take reference photos during the event for completion of the painting, as required, in his studio. The painting will be completed within a few days of the event and an image will be emailed to you for approval. Minor modifications can be made at this stage if any changes are required.
After completion the painting will take approximately 2-3 weeks to dry prior to being packaged for delivery.
Once the final painting has been approved prints can also be ordered. These will be archival quality, limited edition and signed by Ben and make ideal presents. Prices are unframed and exclude travel expenses
