LeMakoo takes commissions very seriously. A commission is when you pay me to paint something for you.
‘Thanks again Mike. The original is definitely even more stunning than the photo. Just love it’ LouiseW
If you see a painting you want on LeMakoo that has been sold, or you’d like a different size or colour, feel free to ask for help and a quote.
To date, LeMakoo has produced over 100 commissions with a 100% success rate.
LeMakoo undertakes home/office visits and can suggest ideas if you are looking for something unique. Remember that anything is possible, to email to make an appointment click here.
Allowing enough time
Oil paintings take me about a week to produce, and a week or two to dry. You need to allow approximately two weeks when commissioning an oil painting. Acrylic paintings can be produced much faster as they dry in one day.
The following costs are just a general guide. A painting can be ordered in any size up to 2.5 x 2.5metres. In any increment.
Once the commission has been agreed a 50% non-refundable deposit is required.

Anatomy of a commission
The client wanted an oil painting of his new boat. One to hang in the boat itself (80x40cm) and one to hang in the office (120x80cm). He supplied LeMakoo with pictures and also wanted his favourite lighthouse to appear in the painting.
After a meeting and a visit, a rough was prepared for the clients approval (see below)
The finished product(s)
The client liked one of LeMakoo’s smaller flower paintings but needed to fill a much larger wall, or in this case two walls.
After a meeting and a visit, a rough was prepared for the clients approval (see below. the original is first on the left and the 2 mock ups are created quickly in photoshop as a guide)
