I am a full time artist and thanks to people like you and your interest in real art, I can make a living. My commissions vary in price, usually depending on the size of the painting. I can paint many different custom sizes but I prefer to stick with the ones I know work best. Here is a list of painting sizes and the base price that I charge for most paintings. I do require a photograph for reference, more than one if possible. Here is a basic guideline to what I charge for my portrait paintings:
Stretched Canvas Size and Prices (not including taxes, shipping and handling)
- Small (8×10) $500
- Medium (16X20) $700
- Large (24×30) $900
- Large (36×40) $1400
- Very Large (50×60) $3000
Painting on Watercolor or Art Board
- Small (8×10) $100
- Medium (16×20) $250
- Large (24×30) $500
- Large (36×40) $1000
- Very Large (50×60) $1600
A lot of love, effort and labor goes into my paintings. I require a non-refundable deposit before beginning sketches/preliminary paintings of your commission. The deposit is equal to 20% of the total painting price. For large paintings, I do require an additional deposit when your painting is halfway completed. Due to the amount of time some of the art takes, large paintings can take weeks to a couple months to complete.
