Pricing
   
   
   
Example 1
This painting is sized A4, 21cm * 30cm, un-framed this would cost £120.

The 'canvas' in this case would be a 6mm MDF, primed and treated with white gesso primer for a smooth and very stable surface. This is my preferred choice, I have used it for years. It is obviously very flexible as I can cut it to any size.

If you want a linen canvas there is an extra cost of approximately £10 and the sizes are more limited.
Example 2
This painting is sized 40cm * 50cm, un-framed this would cost £380.

The 'canvas' in this case would be a 9mm MDF, primed and treated with white gesso primer for a smooth and very stable surface.

If you want a linen canvas there is an extra cost of approximately £15 and the sizes are more limited.
Example 3
This pencil drawing is A3, 30cm * 42cm, un-framed this would cost £150.

I use a high quality 220gsm smooth drawing paper.
These are examples of pet portraits, but please see the main page of this web site for other painting types I do. These range from portraits to 'old master' copies. Prices of 'old master' copies are variable given the inherent difficulty of the particular painting required.

People portraits are also priced on a per portrait basis as they are more time consuming and difficult. As a rough guide they would be twice the price of a pet portrait of similar size.

I work from photographs, these have to be of quite high definition and colour true, as far as possible. It is preferable to have a number of photographs not only showing the look but also the character of your pet.

Once a size and cost is agreed I would create a small number of layouts using image editing software and share these with you as approximations of the intended finished painting. I would then make changes, if required, and agree on a final image. If you are still happy for me to continue, I would want a 25% payment.

I would then start the painting.

At some stage, roughly half way through the painting, I would send you a photo of the painting in progress, if you are still happy I would complete it. Time to complete is difficult for me to predict, it depends on the difficulty of the painting and other commitments. 

Once completed I will send a photo of the final painting.. If you are still happy with it, I would want payment in full. Once the payment is received we could arrange to either meet and hand the painting over or I could post it (at an additional cost). If you are simply not happy with the painting at this stage and I can't reasonably resolve your concerns then I would return the 25% you have paid. 

I am not offering a framing service at the moment and would request that you find your own local framer.
