First step: Finding the perfect reference photo
The creation of a custom painting starts with two of the most important elements: You and your car. We will talk about all of your wishes and/or ideas you may have for the painting of your car.
Together, we'll find the perfect photo of your car and among other things, we'll establish the size of the canvas. When all of the elements are discussed, you order your painting and then the creation process of your unique car painting can begin!
You can see all of the prices already on my website under order commission painting.
Second step: Making the painting come to life
After studying the reference photos, I will start doing sketches.
Working on perspective can be tricky. In this stage, it's extremely important that I get all of the proportions perfectly right, because the sketch will form the foundation for the rest of the painting. Creating a realistic art piece with traditional techniques is a very time-consuming process. It can take from 20 hours for the smaller paintings and up to 200 hours for the larger ones. I will take the time to paint every little detail, every shadow, every highlight and every reflection. Layer upon layer the artwork will be coming to life.
Modern materials will make sure, that the artwork is of the finest quality. Additionally, the old-school techinques that are used, give the paintings their traditional feel and look.
Last step: Packaging and shipping
The delivery of a brand-new artwork is very exciting. Especially for commissioned work. It is always an honour when clients ask me to create their custom painting. I work on every project with a lot of passion and it is incredibly rewarding to see clients react to my art. Because everything is handmade for you, the painting will always carry an extra personal experience.
The artwork will be delivered by DHL Express shipping. Every painting will be wrapped extremely well and carefully packaged with certificate. I ship my artworks worldwide.

How fast can you make a painting?
The creation and shipping time depend again, on size. The smaller the painting is, the faster you get it.
The drying time is always around two weeks when the painting is done. So does take some time as well (I use oil on strech canvas).
If you need to get it quickly or for a gift, please let me know and I'll see what I can do. But for the creation of the painting + drying + shipping time, it usually takes from 4 to 6 weeks. Everything else totally depends on how booked I am and how much in a hurry you are.
Do you only paint cars?
I mostly paint cars, but I do however also paint motorcycles, boats, and planes. And people if they are next to cars. If you have any more additional questions make sure to Contact me.
