Pricing and Policies for Art Commissions
Process and Policies
We begin by discussing your vision for the painting! Most paintings are created from images that you already have (such as a picture of a person, a house, a landscape, etc.) Others are created from scratch based upon a concept. There is a $100 nonrefundable fee applied to creating a concept sketch (this goes towards the total price of your project). At this time, we also will agree upon a time-line for completion, which is typically 1-2 months and can vary according to my current schedule of projects.
A 50% deposit is required to begin work on the commission. Once started, you will receive at least 3 photo updates of the painting progression, at which point feedback is welcome! It’s very important to offer feedback at this time, if you feel necessary, as changes cannot be made once a painting is completed! Once the painting is complete, the remaining 50% is due and then it will be delivered to you. If needed, payments can be split into more than 2 installments.
Below are prices for different kinds of paintings. These prices are subject to adjustments depending on the details of your commission. For portraits, they typically take about the same amount of time regardless of size, so I will typically go with the size you would like. If it happens to be very large (i.e. larger than 18″ x 24″), the price may be higher.
