ORDERING YOUR PORTRAIT
Using Oils, Pencils and Charcoals, I simply require a clear, concise photo to work from, preferably using natural light. If you are unable to provide your own, don’t worry; I offer a photo taking service. For Wildlife commissions there are more options available if you do not have any specific images for me to work from as we can use a variety from my own collection as well as the internet.
Once a photo has been decided on, I ask for a 40% deposit before I make a start. The remaining balance can be paid at the end.
When your painting is complete, I will scan and send a proof via email for your approval. If alterations are necessary I will make the adjustments and send further proofs until we get the portrait as you like it.
For the drawings and charcoals, you have the option of also having the final piece mounted at an additional cost starting from £10, depending on size of the commission. This especially makes a difference if the portrait is a gift for someone and you don’t have time to get it framed, as the drawing is otherwise sent in a postal tube.
All commissions are sent via Special delivery to insure cover. Depending on the size and weight of the piece, postage costs start from £7.25.
To order or enquire about your portrait please email me email@example.com.
PRICES & SIZES
I offer a wide range of prices and sizes to suit most budgets. As an idea, please see below for a basic framework of costs:
A5: £210 A4: £340 A3: £460 A2: £620 A1: £1000
A5: £300 A4: £520 A3: £850 A2: £1200 A1: £2000
* Note postage & packaging costs are not included
** Prices are per portrait. If you wish, for example, to have two portraits heads drawn/painted on the same sheet/canvas then the price will be (x2) based on the size of the portrait, not the canvas.
As well as accepting commissions in advance, I also offer gift vouchers for those who cannot find a suitable photo without ruining the surprise, have left it too late or simply want to allow the recipients to choose their own commissioned art piece.
Popular with Weddings, Birthdays, Paper anniversaries, Christmases and many other occasions, my boxed gift voucher pack comprises of a beautiful white shallow gift box finished with a black ribbon and an own branded wax seal stamp. Inside the box, as you can see above, the recipient will find a professionally printed 4”x4” card with a printed drawing of mine on the front, and the gift voucher inside along with a small selection of promotional material.
THE ORDERING PROCESS
Once we agree on a price, size and medium, I will print up the gift voucher (personalised message inside optional) and have it send to you within 6 working days.
I will then discuss with you the proposed date of the occasion you wish to give the voucher, and arrange a time to get back in contact with either you, or direct with the recipient if preferred, to begin the commission.
My gift vouchers are valid for two years.
As with the commissions I request 40% deposit upfront, the remaining balance can then be paid once the art piece is complete.
Recipients can add to the value of their voucher and can order any size, medium, plus frames. *Please note though when redeeming, recipients who wish to add to their voucher will be purchasing on the price list at the present time.
