Doing things the old way, in oils, means a lot of time is required in planning and executing an painting. It's slow work and needs a lot of care, so is more costly at €2000 plus.
Philip also uses digital programs to create old school, painted style images which unlike modern digital art, remain true to the old look of his original work from the eighties. The computer gives him more creative freedom, and he can work faster. Depending on the amount of detail and work, the fee is between €500 to €2000 for a digital cover painting.
