I would be honored to have the opportunity to work on a commissioned piece of art for you. The information below applies to pet portraits only and you can see samples of my work in this genre in the Feline Portrait Gallery. I will be updating the website soon with information on commissions of oil painting portraits and/or classical reproduction work.
Prices on commissioned work vary based upon several factors including medium (watercolor, color vs. graphite pencil), size, theme, and number of subjects. All artwork is produced using the finest quality materials, including acid-free paper and artist-quality pigments and pencils. In general, portrait prices will range from $75 for a small (9"x12") graphite pencil work to $250 for a larger (16"x20") full-color piece. Prices will be reduced by 30% if the artist is allowed to make and sell reproduction prints of your portrait, otherwise the work will be yours exclusively.
Initial sketches will be emailed to you for review, and no deposit will be required until you are satisfied with the progress underway on your commissioned work and approve the preliminary sketch.
For more information, please contact the artist directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos submitted for consideration for portrait work should be high resolution images (at least 300-600 dpi) that can be printed to 8"x10" in size clearly. Please take a look at some of the sample images below for some examples of good photo poses for portrait work, as well as examples of how various photos can be handled and transformed into artist images. I recommend photos taken in natural light (no flash) for the best results.
