Aarnoud was absolutely wonderful to work with and the commissioned drawing turned out perfect. This was a gift for a friend's wedding, and I wanted to document a special place as a gift. Before purchasing, I sent Aarnoud a number of pictures and he was very helpful in sharing his vision. Throughout the process, he followed up very quickly, asking for my input and sharing his thoughts when I asked for his. The overall turnaround time was very quick and the hand drawing was just as he previewed over messages. The drawing turned out exceptional - I would absolutely buy from Aarnoud again!

Aarnoud thought carefully about the design of a professional Christmas card and then put it on paper above expectations. A quick service, professionalism and moreover a beautiful sketch of my house with garden were the result. Nothing but positive words!

Our architectural sketch from Aarnoud is exactly what I wanted to gift my husband. I tried to find an artist based in North America because I thought it would be easier to communicate my wishes, but boy was I wrong. We needed a European sensitivity to really have the right "feel" for the building. The sketch is of my husband's childhood home, and super sentimental because his mother passed away last year. Aarnoud knew exactly what we needed, in fact he had suggestions to make the sketch even better. Aarnound was also super flexible on the delivery and timing of shipping so it arrived during the exact window when my husband could collect.

I commissioned a drawing from Aarnoud, based on a photograph. The subject, a large telescope, combined architectural and mechanical qualities with a lot of intricate detail. It also required the combination of views from a few different photographs. There were also some people in the foreground of the photograph that I wanted to include as I thought they added interest. Throughout this process, Aarnoud was very patient, responsive and attentive to detail. We discussed the composition and settled on a square aspect ratio, based on a rough sketch that Aarnoud put together. The end result was delivered much sooner than I anticipated and I am very pleased with it.

Beautiful poster of trees that I have placed proudly in my living room. I used a simple Ikea frame and I think it worked out great! Shipping and delivery was as promised

I placed two orders for my double commission. So this is another review. Great work and quick turn-around time.

I had ordered a double commission. One for myself and one to give away. Aarnoud has largely exceeded my expectations for this work. He was very communicative about the approach. For example, on how best to frame the subject versus the original reference. He worked very smoothly and delivered well on time.
