Aquarelles Commissions Lessons

Maya creates her aquarelles in urban surroundings and also workes on her holiday trips. She normally paints in the studio but prefers working ‘a la prima’ on site. The picture usually takes about two hours from sketch to last brush stroke. Maya uses the Russian water colour boxes ‘Leningrad’ and 300 g/sm paper.

The original pictures are sold either framed or just mounted. The ‘on site’ watercolours are sold at price range from £110 to £380 (mounted). See Gallery for image sizes and prices. Bookings are taken via e-mail and by telephone. See Contact for details.

Commissions are taken to paint or draw your individual house or a view from your window. Sizes are 400X500 mm or smaller. Price varies from £380 to £200, depending on the size. The price is dependent on whether the painting is completed on site (top of the range price) or from studio (lower price range).

An internet sale option is on hold, but will be launched soon so please be patient if you live far away! Please also let us know if you want a painting reserved for you, it can be done via e-mail.
