Portrait Commissions

Own a beautiful painting of your loved ones that can last lifetimes!

How it works

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.

If you have questions about medium options, please be sure to look through the Q&A section below.

I look forward to making your special works of art!

Q&A about Painting Commissions

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.

Gouache

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.

Acrylic

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.

Oil

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.

I know these cheeks are cute right?!

Will I get to see progress on my painting?

Yes you will! I will be emailing you pictures of the painting in each phase of the process. There are three phases; beginning, middle and final phase. If you are displeased with any part of the painting after the final phase, we will talk about what you would like improved and I will work on the painting until you are completely pleased.

How long will it take for me to receive the painting?

It really all depends on the medium and size you have chosen. I normally work pretty quickly. Gouache paintings take about 2-3 weeks to be in your hands, acrylic is about 3-4 weeks and oil paintings would be 4-8weeks. Please be sure to let me know if you need your painting by a specific date.

What if I want more than two persons in a painting?

If you would like 3 or more persons in a painting please fill out the form below and I will get back to you with information on that. I normally request a picture to suggest what size would work best for the amount of people in the painting since I can not do detail work on smaller canvases.

~Portrait Request Form~

Please fill out the form below with the size and medium option you have chosen. If there is any special time request, please let me know. And be sure to include further questions you may have. I look forward to creating a memorable piece of artwork that your family and loved ones can cherish and enjoy.
