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 .
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.
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. Prices start from £100 for a small painting.
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.
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.
I have some prints available for sale. Please have a look in the shop. These are usually supplied mounted and unframed.
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.
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.
