Coloured Pencil Commission Price List
Commissioning is a very individual process and I am more than happy to give you a quote based on your requirements.
Prices start from £375, depending on the size and complexity of the drawing.
Sizes & Prices
The prices below are for popular sizes and gives you an approximate guide. I also offer custom sizes so please get in touch if you have a specific size in mind:
Approx Portrait Sizes/Prices *
8 x 10" (20 x 25cm) = £375
10 x 12" (25 x 30cm) = £475
12 x 16" (30 x 40cm) = £575
16 x 20" (40 x 50cm)= £875
* add 10% extra for bridle or collar work
Once your portrait has been decided upon, a small deposit of 20% is needed to secure your booking. This is non refundable once drawing has been started. The balance is only due once you are 100% happy with your completed commission.
Happy to accept payment by instalments, so please let me know if you would like to spread your payments over 3 or 6 months.
Postage & Delivery
Postage is included for the UK. Can also ship worldwide with postage advised, depending on your location. Once I have received your chosen reference material, a more accurate cost and size will be agreed upon before starting your commission.
In order to capture your pets key features it is important that the photo you provide is clear and in focus. The best way to take your pets photo is outdoors in natural light with the light source preferably behind you, facing your pet. A bright overcast day is best. Avoid using a flash as it can often mask a lot of detail and cause the dreaded red-eye effect.
Best to take the photo at eye level, with your pet looking straight at you or with their head slightly titled to one side.
If you are commissioning a pet that has sadly passed away, I understand that your photograph choices may be limited so please don't worry. Send as many as you can and I will work with you to achieve the best result.
Multiple pets don't need to be in the same photograph provided. In fact it is always best to provide them as separate photos and I will happily put together a composition for you to approve before starting your commission.
Progression & Completion
I will keep in touch with you via email regarding your commission, giving you updates so you will be able to see its progress. This will give you the chance to make any comments along the way. I also post regular updates on my social media, unless this is something that you would prefer me not to do. Especially if it is a gift for someone and you do not wish to spoil the surprise. If you have a special date in mind such as Christmas, Birthday or an Anniversary, I will always do my best to accommodate your request. Gift vouchers are always an option too.
Upon completion, you will receive a final scan for you to approve. The remaining balance is only due once you are 100% happy with your completed commission.
