Own a beautiful painting of your loved ones that can last lifetimes!
You have a beautiful picture/moment that you’ve captured of your loved ones and you’d like to make it into a special piece of art, either to gift it or keep it yourself. Perfect! You’ve come to the right place.
You will see different price charts below with different medium options. You can choose which option you’d like best and fill out the form below. I will reply to confirm I have received your commission request and you will send over the picture/pictures you’d like for me to work from.
Once we have cleared up all questions that you may have and I can start working, I will be sending you an invoice with the deposit amount which is half of the total price of the completed work + shipping, unless it will be a local drop off. If we have agreed to a payment plan, then the amount will vary. The final payment will be made once I have finished the painting and you have approved of the work. I look forward to making your special works of art!
What medium should I choose?
It really all depends on what you’d prefer your commissioned piece to look/feel like + what it is for. I explain mediums below but of course, if you have any questions don't hesitate to send me a message!
If you would like to easily frame your portrait and place it on a table, I’d go with gouache. Gouache is a opaque watercolor medium used on paper. I try my hardest to make my paintings look as realistic as possible and sometimes they look just like pictures. So this medium is really neat for that. Turnaround time for gouache paintings is 2-3 weeks but it is size dependent!
If you are trying to place your new beautiful portrait on a wall, to give it that gallery feel, but are on a budget. Then I’d suggest acrylic . I love working with acrylic on wood, and the final product is quite neat and fun to look at. I work in layers and so you can always find little sections of new colors you hadn’t seen before. If you would want your portrait on a more sturdy surface, then this is a great choice for you! A perfect in-between. Turnaround time for acrylic paintings is 3-4 weeks based on the final size.
Now if you are interested in a very textural and long lasting painting, then I’d suggest oil. This medium has been used traditionally for centuries by old masters of painting who’s works are still intact and in museums till this day. Think Rembrandt, Peter Paul Rubens, Leonardo da Vinci, etc. I love working with oils, as it gives me a fun and creamy texture to work with. If you’d enjoy that type of painting, then this medium is right for you. Turnaround time for oil paintings is 4-8 weeks depending on final size.
