Commissioning your own life study or abstract
If you feel to celebrate you body, your life or a special event with your own unique, personal, original artwork, then come commission me!
The process is all quite simple really! I have six commission spaces available in the year only. Below is a price guide to give you an idea of costs.
I can create an Abstract or a Life Study, of you, or a model, on paper or canvas. I prefer to work in person, but can work from photographs if necessary.
We will start with an initial contact to plan out the subject matter, size, any colour scheme ideas.
I will confirm with a proposal email to set to commission details, price, process and timings. At this point a 50% non-refundable instalment is payable to begin the process.
Sketch Process - for a personal life study. A one hour sitting, with breaks between poses, to create two to three pose sketches to choose from. (Any additional sketches beyond the third sketch in an addition al sketch fee of £75 per sketch and may require a second sitting appointment).
For a professionally modelled life study (or landscape commission) I will send through three sketch images by email for you to choose from.An additional charge to hire a life model may be charged (usually approx. £15 per hour)
Abstract Commissions are a much more instinctive process, with no design or sketch process, but is a longer creation process of three to six weeks.
Creation Process - once the sketch or concept is approved by you, please allow 3-4 weeks creation time (3-6 for abstracts). I'll keep you informed of progress.
Completion - When your artwork is finished I'll send a photo and invoice for the final installation payment. Once the payment is confirmed, I will courier or personally deliver your commission piece to your home.
I can advise on, or come with you to choose, mounting and framing. All works are unframed. Canvases can be hung as they are without framing
Payment is by BACS bank transfer.
