Contemporary Portraits


Matt Buckett has produced portraits for many private clients, most of which are painted in oil paint on canvas. He also works in watercolour, gouache and ink for works on paper and can produce a portrait in the medium of your choice.


Matt paints realistic looking expressions of people that illustrate the sitters character with his unique style. The use of colour, light and contrast are key tools he employs to drive the painting and he often looks for unusual view points to drive the composition.


Commissions are agreed in advance with the client by establishing media, composition, timescale and fee before starting. 


After a fee has been agreed a deposit of half the total is required to start the artwork, with the balance being paid on delivery of the finished portrait.

All materials are included in the commission fee, however delivery costs are arranged seperately and agreed in advance with the client.



Frames can be organised and will be discussed when the commission is agreed. This is an extra service that can be arranged and will be billed seperately to the painting commission.
