Services Offered By jamesmcgairy-artist

Since you are looking at this website you may already have some idea of the kind of work I do.  If not please have a look at the gallery sections.
 
I work with acrylic paint,  as well as gouache and watercolour . 
 
Art Workshops
 
I am available for art workshops and demonstrations, notably with acrylic. I have previously worked with a number of art groups. Should you be interested in this area, please let me know, via contact page.
 
Commissions
 
I am happy to take on commissions, please see contact section.  Please get in touch and I would be happy to discuss your requirements. For a painting commission, I would produce initial sketches to establish the composition. Then, once these have been approved , I would proceed to artwork.
 
I mention minimum size, as the final painting will usually be at least 15mm larger by height and width.
 
My turn around time for a painting could be as little as two weeks. However this could be longer for larger paintings and can depend on the time of year and current work commitments.
 
 Original paintings
 
I have original paintings for sale, and will update these regularly. In addition to presenting new paintings on this website, I plan to show work in exhibitions and shows. I appreciate buying a painting is a significant committment, and is perhaps a challenge without seeing the original in front of you. The enlargements on this website are not huge. If you are interested in a particular painting I can send a larger image by email. This is not ideal, as monitor settings may not reproduce a 100% faithful likeness. I would be happy to dispatch a painting, upon full payment, and should you decide not to keep it, I would refund in full upon return of the painting.
 
A brief description of the paintings shown on this site can be seen when viewing an enlargement, and when holding the cursor over the image. I am happy to supply any additional information, please see contact section.
 
I usually supply my paintings with double mounts but unframed. I have found peoples' choice of frame is quite personal, and there are a multitude of framing materials available. I would be happy to arrange for work to be framed and glazed, please ask.
 
Prints
 
I have some prints available for sale. Please have a look in the shop. These are supplied unmounted and unframed. I would be happy to arrange for prints to be mounted and framed.
 
Illustration and License of work
 
Please let me know if you have specific illustration requirements. I would be happy to send samples and discuss. If you have seen an image you would like to use, please let me know, and we can arrange for a license to use it.
 
Payment
 
At present I am able to accept payment by cheque, postal order or via Paypal. If neither of these methods are convenient, please contact me and I can explore alternatives.
 
Thanks
