The content for commission work is usually inspired by previous paintings and studies by Richard or the client's own photographs.  All commissions will be painted in oil on either canvas or gessoed board.
Richard J Oliver begins the commission process by discussing with the client their needs and concepts and often looking at the space the commission will eventually be located. . Richard and his wife Michelle, who has had decades of experience as an interior designer, will discuss and offer recommendations for the space, taking into consideration sizing, color, and subject. Mock ups and mood boards are routinely used to virtually stage ideas for clients considering commissions and a digital representation of the painting may be drafted before attempting the final piece.   
Commission sizes are customisable to accommodate your space, design, and vision. The table below lists some of Richards standard sizes, but commissions can be smaller or larger, squares or rectangles.
Prices do not include frame, however Richard and Michelle Oliver do all their framing in house so the perfect frame to match the work and the environment can be made at an agreed fee.
