Pricing starts at $ 500

Pick me for:

Love painting with oils on canvas, drawing, sketching and illustration. In terms of size, the smallest acceptable canvas is 30x40cm, the largest is up to 100cmx90cm. I love painting cityscapes and landscapes, portraits and abstracts. I'm very versatile and experienced, having been doing this for quite a while. I love sending updates and progress pics but I'm happy for you to set the level of communication required. Above all else, love jobs where I can be imaginative and creative to bring ideas life. I will always provide a free quote before starting work, which details everything included, such as materials, labour, delivery cost &c. In terms of budget: terms are a 20% deposit for the initial design (i.e. the drawing, for example on canvas) and I require the 80% outstanding amount to start painting. I calculate the quote based on cost of materials, labour and BAA's cut + tax, so as a rule of thumb, the larger and more complex the project, the higher the cost and vice versa. When your project is complete you can decide whether to have it delivered or pick it up from my studio at Bighouse Arts. An oil painting can literally last for centuries and it represents the best of us, the finest emotions, experiences, memories and feelings in life; it is a beautiful object to treasure for many years to come. By commissioning local, independent artists like me through Book An Artist, you directly support the artist and a wider community of artists too! Contact me for a free quote.

From start to finish Steve was awesome to work with. Super responsive and communicative, open to ideas and collaboration, flexible with timing and budget, and genuinely invested in the project. Steve kept me informed and involved throughout the whole process, and as someone new to the process, I really appreciated this. Not to mention he did an INCREDIBLE job on my commission! Super happy all round, thanks Steve!!

Working with Marco was a real privilege. I commissioned him to paint a portrait of our gorgeous daughter who sadly passed away in a car accident. Marco was really empathetic, easy to communicate with and full of ideas about how we could bring this picture to life. He kept me informed at every stage and worked collaboratively. I cannot recommend Marco enough for your special project. He captures the essence of loved ones so well.

Reviews:

I can highly recommend Stuart. I commissioned him to do 2 portraits for me as a gift to my wife for our anniversary. He did one coloured family portrait and one charcoal portrait of my wife and myself. The artwork was fantastic, my wife was so impressed (as was I). Stuart was very easy to communicate with, responding to my questions quickly and honestly. I don't think the process could have been any easier nor the results any better. Thanks so much Stuart.

Looking to capture a moment in time through art? Look no further than the world of sketching and drawing. From pencil sketches to pen sketches, and everything in between, there are countless ways to bring your vision to life. In this article, we'll explore some of the different types of sketches and drawings, and show you how you can turn your favorite photos into beautiful works of art.

Sketches and Drawings: Exploring Different Techniques

Sketching and drawing are two distinct art forms that both involve putting pen or pencil to paper. Sketching is often done quickly and loosely, with an emphasis on capturing the essence of the subject rather than creating a detailed, finished piece. In contrast, drawing typically involves more time and effort, and focuses on creating a polished, fully-realized image.

Sketch of Melbourne, flower sketches, anime sketches, and more

One popular type of sketching is urban sketching, which involves capturing the unique character and energy of Melbourne through sketches and drawings. Whether you're sketching a bustling street scene or a quiet park, urban sketching is a great way to connect with your surroundings and create something truly special.

If you're looking for something a bit more specific, consider flower sketching. This delicate and intricate art form involves capturing the beauty and complexity of flowers through detailed sketches and drawings. From roses to daisies to lilies, there are countless flowers to choose from, each with its own unique beauty. Another popular type of sketching is anime sketching, which involves capturing the distinct style and energy of Japanese animation. Whether you're a fan of classic anime or modern hits, anime sketching is a great way to bring your favorite characters to life and explore your own creative potential.

One popular technique is photo to sketch, which involves using software to convert your photos into hand-drawn sketches. This can be a great way to experiment with different styles and techniques, and create a truly unique piece of art. So whether you're interested in sketching flowers, creating a pen sketch of London, or exploring the world of anime sketching, there are countless ways to explore the world of sketching and drawing. With a bit of practice and patience, you can create beautiful, one-of-a-kind works of art that you'll treasure for years to come.
