Portfolio for Douglas Jennings ARBS - Commissionaportrait

Associate Member Royal British Society of Sculptors Douglas Jennings studied figurative sculpture at Stafford Art College where he was inspired by renaissance sculptors such as Bernini and Michelangelo. He embarked upon his career at Madame Tussauds where he specialised in portrait sculpture of celebrities and historical figures. His interest in developing realistic and accurate portrait figures has continued as a freelance artist. His approach to sculpture now is varied both in style and medium from loosely modelled to a very high realistic finish. He sculpts with sensitivity to the human form whether in miniature or large scale bronze.

Artist's Statement   My interest is in developing realistic, dynamic and accurate portraits and figures, exploring the qualities and form of the human body as it really looks - the tension in the muscles, the movement of the body.
 
 

Statement      Commissioning a sculpture gives you the opportunity to own a unique work of art, whether it is a private piece for a collection, a major public work, a memorial or an exceptional gift.  
 
What is Involved:  
 
Before contacting Douglas to discuss your requirements, consider whether you would like a full figure, portrait bust or a life size sculpture. As a Portrait and Figurative sculptor Douglas develops realistic, dynamic and accurate portrait figures, including children and animals, contemporary or classical in style, in wax, plaster, stone and bronze.  
 
The Commissioning Process  
 
Contact Douglas for an initial consultation to discuss the design concept of the piece you would like commissioned. Details such as the pose and expression, style, materials and the budget will be covered at this stage as well as timescales, which will vary depending on the size and complexity of the commission. Once a brief is in place, the process begins either with the research of pictures, photographs and any other reference material and/or live sculpting sessions with the subject. Throughout the whole process you are directly involved, with regular review sessions that continue until final approval. Once approved a mould is made, cast and polished to the requirements and installed at its location.  
 
You work directly with the artist, Douglas Jennings, and receive personal service throughout the commissioning process.
