Steve,

If you do a 'Google search' you will be amazed at how many people there are. It's too many really & I found it impossible to make a choice. In the end I went with someone who is a Dogsey member and who has had some good reviews on here. She is known as 'Artist Heather' she's doing a sketch for me now & I'm considering giving her an 'oil' commission latter. BTW she explained to me why most artists now use Acryllic rather than oils.
If I can work out how to do it I'll put up a link to her site shortly.

She is quite near to you as well. If you can wait a week or so I'll tell you in a PM what my sketch is like.

It depends how much you would want to pay.....have a look here...

He will do commissions when he has the chance, but it does cost as he uses oil on canvas, check out how he works and you'll see why he costs a lot...he's also well known and exceptionally good...

Just depends how much you want to pay....

Ramble - Just had a look at John Silvers site, wow his work is stunning, but if you can count Royalty & the Kennel Club among your clients I guess it should be. Thanks for the link.

I LOVE them, even better in real life!

Have to admit I'm biased...John Silver is my 2nd cousin!!!!

Hi Losos can i ask you why so many artist use acrylic instead of oils then.I use both and apart from being a quicker drying media i cant see much difference. I no alot of artist that perfer oils as they find it very hard to work with acrylic .What do you prefer and why.
