I accept a small number of pet portrait commissions each year. My order book gets filled months in advance, so I am currently taking bookings for both pencil and oil on canvas portraits from September 2020 onwards.
Coloured Pencil Portrait Prices:
A4 (21 x 29.7cm)
|30 x 30cm Square
|A3 (29.7 X 42cm)
Note: Prices are for an unframed coloured pencil portrait of a single subject and do not include postage and packing. Postage costs depend on size, weight and destination, I will advise you of costs once you have determined the requirements for your portrait.
Oil on Canvas Portrait Prices:
|24 x 30 cm
|30 x 40 cm
|45 x 60 cm
|60 x 75 cm
Note: Other sizes are available but I do not create oil paintings smaller than 24 x 30 cm. Prices include shipping. Framing is not included in the above prices. Not everyone wishes to frame canvas’ hence it not being included but I am happy to discuss framing options and provide a quote if you wish your portrait to be framed. Oil paintings are created using the highest quality linen canvas' and professional artist grade oil paint. Due to the slow drying nature of oil paint the timescale is longer than that of the pencil portraits and once paintings are touch dry they are varnished to protect them.
Booking Your Commission
I require a 25% deposit of the original quoted price to secure your booking, the final balance is due upon completion of the artwork before it is dispatched. If for any reason you need to cancel your booking you must advise me 14 days before I am due to start your portrait or the deposit becomes non-refundable.
I work from photos provided by you, the client. Ideally reference photos should be of a high resolution and taken in natural light so that I can see the details, markings and true colour of the animal. If you wish to provide me with photos that were taken by someone else or a professional photographer you must ask that person for their permission as they own the copyright for said photos. I am happy to go through photos with you and discuss what will work and what is possible from the ones you provide, I’m good at using artistic licence but the better the reference photos the better the portrait will be.
