Keen to get started? I've listed a few key things to consider when commissioning an artwork.
I can create artworks on 2 types of materials - paper or stretched canvas.
The paper option is offered in 2 different painting styles - watercolour (transparent colour with ink line) or gouache (opaque colour). The painting is created on 300gsm watercolour paper and will require framing for display.
The canvas option (painting on stretched thick-edge canvas) is ready-to-hang.
I offer several artwork size options which are listed below.
A few things to consider - Where is this artwork being placed? What size would be suitable for the space?
If you're not sure about the size we can have a chat about what would be appropriate for your purposes (e.g. artwork for wedding invitations vs. an artwork to be hung up on your wall will have different requirements).
Sizes for paintings on 300gsm watercolour paper (gouache or watercolour):
A5 (14.8 x 21cm) - $190 AUD plus postage
A4 (21 x 29.7cm) - $350 AUD plus postage
A3 (29.7 x 42cm) - $490 AUD plus postage
Sizes for stretched canvas paintings:
12x12" (30.5 x 30.5 cm x 3.8cm deep)
20x20" (50.8 x 50.8 cm x 3.8cm deep)
24x24" (60.9 x 60.9 cm x 3.8cm deep)

16x20" (40.6 x 50.8cm x 3.8cm deep)

Prices start from $480 AUD plus postage
I paint using your photos as a reference so please send me as many photos with good lighting and from different angles as possible - this is very helpful for me to capture the details perfectly!
Also let me know if there are any special features or colours you'd like included in the artwork.
Once we've discussed the details and what you're after, I usually start with a rough pencil sketch to work out the composition and send this through for your comments and tick of approval. Once the sketch layout is finalised we begin the painting process (I usually issue an invoice for a 50% deposit to commence the painting).
Throughout the process I keep you updated with progress photos. The artwork will be shipped out to you once you are completely happy with your painting!
If you have a date you would like the artwork by please let me know! I'll do my best to make sure you receive it in time.
Completion of the artwork does depend on the size and material of your painting - so I've listed a rough guide below - the times listed are assuming my availability (I'm only one person after all!) and that all details have been finalised and are for the painting part of the process.
Paper option - about 2 weeks plus shipping time (for A4 size)
Canvas option - about 4-5 weeks plus shipping time (for 16x20" size - this includes drying time for the paint and varnish which takes 2 weeks)
