I often get requests to paint artwork to record a special memory or occasion, for example wedding venues or favourite holiday destinations. I work closely with clients throughout the process from intial sketch right through to the finished piece, usually via regular e mail contact at every stage.
For this kind of work cost is determined by an hourly rate of £15 and depends on size and detail, for example a simple 12x12" coastal scene would begin around £150, whereas a larger more detailed image depicting a wedding venue and guests would cost around £300 depending on detail.
Every piece is priced individually and a maximum price is provided before I start work to give reassurance and avoid uncertainty. When I begin I record start and finish times to determine the final cost in relation to my hourly rate which, unless additional detail has been requested after my quote, will never go above the maximum price.
Commissioning a piece of artwork, either as a gift or for yourselves is very special and very personal. It captures your memories and makes them last forever and it's very special for me to be able to do that for people, so if you like my work please get in touch for a chat, no obligation whatsoever.
