Commissioned Art Work

The stuff you need to know...

  • The time taken for a commission would depend on my workload but would generally be completed in approximately 6 to 8 weeks depending on the size and complexity of the work, (and whether my brain is in gear) so please allow plenty of time. If it was likely to take longer or my workload is heavy then of course I would let you know beforehand. If it's ready sooner then wooohoooo!!
  • A preliminary sketch and work-in-progress scans would be sent to you on a regular basis for approval and any changes you may want.
  • The portraits would be done in either A3 or A4 size but different sizes can be negotiated.
  • Now a bit that I don't like but is necessary I'm afraid....a 25% non refundable deposit would be required before the start of any new commission with the remainder paid on completion of the work. This is because the work could not be sold to anyone else of course and while I'm doing a commission, I would not be able to do any other work.

Okay, now to the nitty gritty of what you need to do so that I can do what I need to do...

  • I need several good (or at least fairly decent), high resolution images to work from. These can be digital photos or digital scans of photos. Basically, the better the image, the more detailed the drawing although I know it's difficult if the subject has passed away, so the best you can find in those cases.
  • If it's a wildlife commission then I can either work with your photos or trawl through my sources for one that would be just fabulous dahhhling.

The current Price List...

The following prices are based on a single head and shoulder artwork.
For full body, backgrounds or extra subject/s on a single portrait please get in touch for a fixed price quote.

Basic price (for a single head/shoulder portrait)

210 × 297mm (or 8.3" × 11.7") $ 180.00

  • Sizing is a guideline only and is completely negotiable. If you have a specific size request for your portrait or it includes additional subjects, this can be discussed and quoted accordingly.

  • Shipping costs would also be extra of course and that would depend on shipping rates at the time.

Contact me if you are interested and I'll be able to give you a fixed price quote once I've seen what you would like and we've discussed the format and presentation
