Pricing Guide - March 2014

Portrait Pricing

All of my Pet Portraits are done on quality acid free paper or board, using quality soft pastels, creating lasting artworks that will become heirlooms that can be passed down through the generations. A truly unique keepsake featuring the animal members of your family, past or present, or a wonderful gift for those you love, who you know love their animals.

All animal paintings will include some shadows and background: grass, tiles, carpet etc. If you would prefer a more detailed background that can certainly be done, but will incur additional cost.

I can provide framing for your portrait, and most paintings I do are commissioned to be delivered framed and ready to hang. Framing will include a single mount and plain frame in a colour most suited to your painting. Standard frames are either black, very dark brown or tan/timber finish. Other colours or finishes can certainly be arranged.

Your portrait may well look better in a different shaped/size or style of frame to the standard ones I use as below, or you may wish to have double mounting, or other special personalised framing requirements. Please discuss your framing needs when speaking to me about your commission. The sizes and prices listed below are for unframed artworks and do not include P&H.

These examples are a guide as to the approximate likely cost of your portrait even if not these exact sizes:

Looking forward to hearing from you to discuss your wishes, and to organise a special portrait of a special animal, whether a cherished pet or one of your favourite creatures in the animal kingdom.
