He has work in private collections in England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Sudan, Oman, Dubai, Canada, Mexico and the USA.  John Bawtree is delighted to receive commissions.  Past commissions include a set of commemorative paintings of the old British Embassy in Oman for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and he was commissioned by Devonport dockyard to paint the ex-royal yacht Britannia.  His most recent commission was a set of watercolours of Oman for the Mathaf Gallery in Knightsbridge.

In the past his most prolific source of work has been the ANZ Grindlays bank for whom he has produced sixty five paintings for reproduction in calendars; and Gulf Greetings in Dubai who started a heritage series of cards with three dozen of his paintings of the United Arab Emirates. In January 2005 his work was sold for the first time at auction at Christies in South Kensington.
