My pricing is simple and clear: it's based on the size and media. Feel free to inquire me anytime for consultation.
The basic rates are:
Oil on Canvas: $3.00 per sq in
Charcoal, ink, colour pencil on Paper: $2.50 per sq in
After I receive 50% of total commission fee as a non-refundable retainer, I create at least one small study based on consultation with my client.
After client's approval, I began creating the piece in actual scale.
During my creating process I report the progress as I go to ensure the final result. Once the client gives final approval, I ship or hand deliver the work upon payment of remaining balance plus shipping.
If you are considering oil painting for a commission, please make sure the desired deadline is at least 3 months away. For drawing, it generally takes unto one month depending on urgency of other ongoing projects.
