Commissions

If   you   would   like   a   unique   piece   of   artwork   to   remind   you   of   a   special   experience   or   as   a   gift for   someone   then   why   not   commission   an   original   oil   painting,   oil   study   or   drawing?   Prices start   at   £300   for   an   unframed   pencil   drawing,   £400   for   a   mixed   media   study,   £500   for   an   oil study or £1650 (framed) for a more detailed oil.

Bespoke Commissions

Perhaps   you   would   like   your   own   trophy   or   personal   best   fish   to   feature   in   one   of   my underwater   paintings   along   with   the   fly,   lure   or   bait   it   was   captured   on;   or   you   would   like something   similar   to   a   painting   I   have   already   sold.         Whatever   your   requirements   do   get   in touch,   either   by   phone   or   mail,   and   we   can   discuss   your   ideas.      I   regret   that   I   do   not   undertake any   commissions   involving   domestic   animals   or   human   portraits   (with   or   without   fish!). However,    if    you    are    interested    in    something    like    this    please    contact    my    wife    Lisa ( lisa@thepaintedhorse.co.uk ) At   the   moment   my   original   paintings   are   much   in   demand   and   I   often   sell   them   before   they are   finished   so   if   you   would   like   one   of   my   original   paintings   commissioning   one   is   a   good option.
This   bespoke   painting   was   based   upon the   clients   personal   best   catch.   Even   the celebratory      bottle      of      whiskey      was included in the finished piece!

Commissioning a Painting - First Steps

If you’ve decided that you would like to commission a painting please bear

a few points in mind:

1) DESIGN

Do you have any specific ideas and are they in keeping with the style of work I already produce?

2) DIMENSIONS

Does the painting need to fit into a particular space (making allowances for framing)?

3) BUDGET

4) TIME SCALE

A painting can take from a week to a couple of months to complete depending upon the size

and complexity involved and on what other work I may have on the easel at the time.  If the

painting is a gift and needs to be ready for a certain date then please contact me as early as

possible to make sure I can complete and frame it (if required) in good time.

Prices

The price for a piece of commissioned work is dependent on the following:

1) The amount of preparatory fieldwork and research required.

2) The complexity of the design

3) The size and type of painting required (drawing, study or detailed oil)

4) The required completion date

5) Any extra expenses that may be incurred (eg. the purchase of particular flies or lures)

PRICE LIST

The Artist & The Client

Clients   are   usually   very   exited   about   commissioning   a   painting   but   it   is   equally   important that   the   artist   is   happy   and   positive   about   the   arrangements.   Not   only   do   I   need   to   be inspired   by   the   painting   but   I   need   to   be   confident   that   I   can   do   a   good   enough   job   not   only to   please   the   client   but   also   to   meet   my   own   professional   standards.   My   reputation   as   an artist   is   built   upon   my   own   personal   methods   of   working   and   it’s   essential   that   I   feel comfortable   with   the   subjects   I   paint,      therefore   I   reserve   the   right   to   make   the   final   decision on   the   design.   The   painting   I   produce   can   never   be   exactly   the   same   as   the   image   you   may have   visualised   but   I   will   always   do   my   very   best   to   produce   something   that   comes   very near to it.

Next Steps

Once   a   commission   has   been   accepted   and   if   the   subject   matter   is   not   too   specialist   I   will complete   the   painting   and   show   it   to   the   client   for   approval.      If   a   direct   viewing   cannot   be arranged   due   to   time   constraints   or   distance   a      high   resolution   image   will   be   emailed   to   the client.   At      no   stage   you   are   under   any   obligation   to   buy   if   the   painting   does   not   fulfil   your requirements. If   the   commission   is   very   large   and/or   of   a   more   specialist   or   personal   subject   then   a   non- refundable   deposit   would   be   required   before   work   can   begin.   This   would   usually   be   10%   of the     agreed     price.     Staged          progressed     payments     may     be     required     for     high     value commissions.
