Details for Commission Work
I am an Independent full-time Artist. I love what I do very much and I love to make people happy touching their hearts through my Art and creations.
I do accept “Custom Work and Commissions” the price depends of several factors read my process and details below.
This is my Process
Contact me for an initial custom consultation requested via my Contact Form.
The conception of your custom art piece begins with a consultation in regard of inspirations and ideas. This includes desired style and color palette if you have any preference, reviewing reference and inspirations details and or inspirational photos (if you have any).
At some pieces if necessary a light pencil sketch will be prepared for revision and approval before I start painting. Most of my clients after we have discussed all the details and agreed, they ask me to don’t show them anything, because they like to be surprised and want to see the piece only when they receive it. Revisions are only possible during the pencil sketch phase, I will always ask you if you want to see it before I start painting and if you don’t want to see it maybe discussing if something new would be added to your idea.
A turnaround time will be provided once a sketch is done. My current turn around time is usually 2/3 weeks or less, time is based on how busy I am and if there is a wait list. Special arrangements can be made for urgent projects. I will do my best to communicate my timeline with you.
All original paintings are made on Acid Free 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper with high quality watercolors and inks. The finished art piece would be packed in a clear protective sleeve including a Certificate of Authenticity and mailed in a sturdy envelope to safely arrive to the new home.
A 30% non-refundable deposit is due after the initial consultation when the project is confirmed and we agreed with the price quote. The final payment is due as soon the painting is ready. I will email you when. If you’re confident in me and you prefer a one time up-front total payment it’s fine, just let me know and I will send you a PayPal invoice at order confirmation.
I offer two options “Original vs Print” in three sizes:
1st) Option: Price for an “Original” painting or illustration: for an original watercolor painting in my signature style size 8×10 inches (approx. 20 x 25 cm) price start at $130 and up, it depends to the type, style and complexity of the painting. For a size 6×9 inches (approx. 15,2 x 22,9 cm) the price start at $100 and up and for a smaller size 5×7 inches (approx. 12,7 x 17,78 cm) the price for an original painting start at $85 and up . After our initial consultation, I will send you a final price quote and you can place your custom order.
2nd) Option: Price for a high quality “Fine Art Print”: a Fine Art print of an original commissioned painting size 8×10 inches price is $65, for a size 6×9 inches price is $40, and for a mini print size 5×7 price is $30, remember that these prints prices are different than normal prints of my existent paintings. The price is for a “Custom Artwork on Commission” it means that I have to create the painting especially for you, but I will retain the Original Painting and you receive the Fine Art Print, which is a more economical option if an Original Painting is not in your budget. Prints are printed by me in my studio. I do my best to reproduce the prints of my paintings as the closest to the Original.
