Magical Portraits by Nicola Gambin © 2015  |  All Rights Reserved

Commissioning a portrait

I use various media: oils, acrylic, pastel, inks, pencil and charcoal (monochrome).  I enjoy texture in my work wherever possible, along with detail, and tend to be traditional in my overall approach.  Commissions for some clients have been strongly impressionist and/or using vivid colour, allowing freedom in the form and structure.

Reference for my work is either from life, photographs or a combination of both, whichever the occasion demands.  Often many commissions are gifts and therefore a surprise, or maybe circumstances do not permit, so working with the subject matter is not always possible.  In such cases, a selection of images of the same subject is always a great help.

For further information, or to discuss a portrait commission or other artwork, please contact Nicola.
