Prices for Horse Portrait Paintings
There are 2 basic methods of preparing for a portrait of your horse:
This price list is intended as a guide for your appraisal of the prices involved in a commissioned painting. Each commission is unique, and I can provide you with definitive costings, when all the requirements are known.
A deposit of 50% is required before the painting will be started, with the outstanding amount being paid upon approval of the completed painting.
The painting is delivered, via courier once payment has been received, and the painting is varnished.
If a personal visit is required, I add a charge to cover my travel costs and the time spent studying the horse (minimum of 2 hours), at £55/hr).
Should you wish to leave deciding upon aspects of size and content until after a personal visit by myself, I will propose a suitable deposit to be made prior to the visit.
For more details, or to request a quote, please contact me by either email: email@example.com or phone: 023 9241 0108.
A personal visit by the artist, or providing your own photos?
There are 2 options for the reference of your horse painting:
You can either supply your own photographs for me to use as reference, or I can visit in person, to make my own studies of the horse(s) in question.
For the occasions when a painting can't be completed in time for a special date, or maybe you'd like the recipient to be involved in the choices for a painting, but wish to keep the portrait costs private:
... A gift voucher could be the answer.
Once a deposit has been made, I can provide you with an attractive, custom-designed, personalised digital voucher, for use on the special day.
Please do get in contact to discuss your requirements.
A frame for your painting
I supply my paintings either as stretched canvases or directly on board, ready for framing. However, I do not supply the actual frames.
Having used eframe myself, I can recommend eframe.co.uk as an good quality online supplier, with an effective 'mock up' facility that incorporates an image of your painting into any frame, mount, style & size, to help you make just the right choice for your particular situation.
If, however, you prefer to deal with a local framer, I can help source quality suppliers.
