Fancy having your portrait painted by a top British Artist?

I have always loved the film below that my brother, James, made a few years ago of award-winning artist Aldo Balding, one of the UK’s top portrait painters.

Aldo, who used to live close to us in South West France, has painted the portraits of many well-known people, including Peter Allis, Gordon Brown, Sir Andrew Motion, Tim Eggar and Ernie Els.

And now Aldo has agreed to paint a select number of “portrait sketches” for Web of the Week followers through “virtual sittings”.

Each oil on canvas sketch would take about 4 hours and include two sittings of about one hour each over Zoom or similar (you will need a newish ipad or tablet with a high res camera and a means to support it).

The price would be £900, including packaging and courier delivery.

Anyone interested can either contact us or Aldo direct on

More details about Aldo can be found on his website at
