Reviews

I am pleased to present my reviews page with recent portraits and customer comments. 

Thank you to all those who have commissioned portraits and I look forward to your return.

Quote from Tom’s parents…

We commissioned Bill to create pencil drawing of our little boy, and we are overjoyed with the result! Bill managed to capture him perfectly. Everyone who has seen the portrait comments: ‘Wow, that is just Tom’. His Grandma was moved to tears when presented with her birthday present, and his Nanna was thrilled to receive a print on Mother’s Day. It’s brilliant to see the video of the portrait coming to life. We also ordered a set of prints on greetings cards, which has allowed us to share the portrait with Tom’s great-grandparents and other family members. Hushland Portraits is highly recommended.

Quote from Elodie and Lucia’s grandmother…

I have known Bill for many years and have always valued the sensitivity of his work. When he sent me a link to Hushland portraits, I was only to happy for him to do some pencil sketches of my grand daughters for their second birthday. This composition far exceeded my expectations and is now lovingly placed in the girl’s new playroom. He has captured the essence of their personality so beautifully and the end product is much admired by all friends and family.
Thank you so much Bill, and to everyone out there, you could not find a better present for your loved ones.’

Quote from Iris and Thea’s parents…

‘We received the portrait picture of both our children as a Christmas gift from my parents. We were absolutely stunned when we first saw Bills work ! The likeness is incredible!
We really love the simplicity of the pencil sketch aswell which is very much in keeping with our taste.
The added bonus was actually seeing the work being drawn in the video Bill provided – it brought tears to my eyes! ‘

Quote from sisters parents…

“We’re delighted with Bill’s pencil drawing of our two girls, it captures their sparkle in a way that a need to pose in a studio would surely have dampened. And they especially love the video of the drawing process from first mark to final detailing, still watching it every day… if one of them becomes an artist we’ll know who to blame!”


Quote from Cynan, Heulyn and Dyfan’s grandparents…

We wanted to commission portraits of our grandchildren and were aware of the quality of Bill’s work having previously commissioned him for other works of art. The completed drawings more than exceeded our expectations. The likeness is truly remarkable and we are delighted with them.

Quote from Amy’s parents…

Bill’s done a terrific job capturing the life and personality of our baby daughter in his portrait of her. The speed and professionalism with which he was able to produce the portrait in a range of sizes and formats was exceptional and the 30 second video of how he created the image was a truly magical experience for us to watch. As we all know, our children grow up so quickly, so it is very special to be able capture a moment in life so beautifully. I have no hesitation recommending you have Bill create your own personal portrait.

Quote from Jessie Cariad’s owner…

I asked Bill if he would do a portrait of our beloved dog Jessie Cariad who was very sick. I knew it was a surprising commission for Bill but he took it on as a true professional and produced the most wonderful portrait from the photos I sent him. He completely captured the essence of Jessie Cariad and the video that he sent of the process was fascinating to see. It was really something special that all our family will appreciate for years to come.  ……………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Quote Bernards grandparents…

Absolutely delighted with this portrait of Bernard.From a photo Bill has captured the cheeky little chap we love so much. It is hard to believe that Bill has never met him in person,it is so him!!

Having a digital copy of the actual portrait is great, we can send a copy to family abroad without worrying about how the postman will look after it! ( and I can print one – or more- to take into work! – I am such a besotted nanny!!

Quote from friend of Dags who commissioned the portrait...Bill’s portraits are great value and a fantastic service. I asked if he’d be willing to draw a soon-to-be 30-year-old friend as a special birthday gift. He was very accommodating, working with me to choose the perfect photo. The finished portrait was so much more than I’d expected – I knew Bill would be able to capture his features accurately, but I didn’t realise he’d also be able to capture the ‘essence’ of my friend, the aura of his personality, so well too. That’s what makes his portraits stand out, and are the works of a true artist. Even after completing it, Bill wanted to make sure I was happy with the final piece – he works so hard to make it everything you want it to be. To top things off, the video included with the portrait is such a lovely memento, capturing the thought that’s gone into it. I loved the finished piece, and so did my friend and all his loved ones. I would definitely recommend Bill’s service for a unique, beautiful and personal gift – to yourself or someone special! You’re paying for an artist with decades of experience, so they’re really great value too.
