All about the Art of Commissions
The first thing to do is contact me and let me know you are considering a commission. We can communicate via email or I can call you if you provide a phone number. We will discuss what you desire from your painting, and determine the appropriate size to fit your space and your budget. You have the opportunity to personalize the piece, and we can discuss different ways to do that.
I will provide you with an accurate price that will not change. A 50% deposit is required to begin work. The deposit is refundable throughout the entire preparatory process (sketches, underpainting, etc). I will also provide a shipping estimate using current rates at the time.
Once we have moved beyond the layout & approval stages, I will begin painting in oils. Once the oil paint hits the canvas, the deposit becomes non-refundable. Contact me with any questions!
I can guarantee your satisfaction because you will be involved throughout the entire process.
Throughout the project, I will keep you aware of how things are progressing, and provide you with photos of the work in progress. You will be able to provide any feedback you may have as we go along.
In general, most projects spend about 1-2 months on the easel. This can change with larger, more complex pieces and portraits, but this is about average. I can give you a better estimate once I have an understanding of what you desire.
Drying time: It usually takes 3-4 weeks before the painting is completely dry to the touch. Packaging too soon can allow damage to the painting during shipment.
If you have any questions about commissions, please contact me and I will be happy to provide the answers.
