Commissions and Pet Portraits

I greatly enjoy undertaking commissions whether for pets or any other animal. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any enquiries.

If you like my art style and would like to commission me to do a special painting for you then please get in touch.

Because my painting style for animals is fairly detailed I will need a very clear, colour-accurate, and high resolution photograph that you’d like me to work from, and a few other photos that demonstrate the animal’s character are always helpful to see. A portrait photograph tends to work best taken at eye level with the subject in good light but not in direct bright sunlight, and with the focus on the subjects eyes (but of course, if you have a particular pose in mind I will happily go with it, and it can actually create a compelling painting when worked from an interesting pose). If required, and practical (local to me near the Sussex/Hants border), I am happy to take and process photos for the painting (for which there is a charge of £50)

The following example prices are for an acrylic painting of one animal on stretched canvas, which can be hung as it is or can also be framed.

  • 16 x 12 inches (approx 40 x 30cm) – £200
  • 18 x 14 inches (approx 45 x 35cm) – £250
  • 20 x 16 inches (approx 50 x 40cm) – £300
  • 22 x 18 inches (approx 55 x 45cm) – £350
  • 24 x 20 inches (approx 61 x 50cm) – £400
  • 30 x 24 inches (approx 76 x 61cm) – £550
  • Additional subject – + £100

As well as offering painted portraits I also work in pencil, charcoal and pastel. Drawings don’t consume as much time as paintings to complete so prices reflect this.

  • A4 pencil or charcoal drawing – £65
  • A4 pastel drawing – £90
  • A3 pencil or charcoal drawing – £80
  • A3 pastel drawing -£125
  • Photo shoot + £50

I will need payment for commissions to be made in two parts; the first part being a 50% non-returnable deposit, payable before painting begins and on agreement of all options and the second part on or before collection. Prices do not include p&p and if you would like your commission posted to you full payment must be made on completion.

I will keep in touch with you during the process to update you on process and will send a photo of the finished piece for your approval.

For any other sizes or specifications please contact me and I will be happy to discuss.
