Oil Portraits

Oil portraits of individuals normally require two to three sittings, which can take place either at the artist’s London studio or in the subject’s home.

Family or group portraits may require additional sittings.

Preparatory sketches and photographs form part of the process and are included in the price.

Prices for single portraits start at £3500 for a head and shoulders portrait. Prices for families and groups are negotiable and depend on the number of figures and complexity of the commission.

Oil portraits are by commission only. Please contact Michael Alford if you wish to discuss a commission.
