Commission a painting

 

Do you love a piece of artwork I have created but it doesn’t quite fit in your home? Or is there a special place you would like painted for you in my style? A painting for a special person to remind them of their favourite holiday destination or a wedding venue that you would like the bride and groom to have as a keepsake from their special day? Have you always wanted to commission a painting but are unsure about the process?

 

A commissioned painting by Louise Jones

Send me your ideas:-

      • The place you would like painted
      • Any details you would like added
      • The size
      • Whether you would like it on canvas or paper
      • Whether you would like it framed or not

Photographs or on location

I can paint from good quality photographs or from a site visit. Please make sure that you hold the copyright on any photographs that you wish to use as a reference for your painting.   Permission from the copyright holder must be given if you do not own photographs.

Paintings on paper are on 400gsm fine art paper and will be mounted with a high quality archival mount ready for framing.   Paintings on Canvas are available on thin or deep canvas and contain fixings ready to hang on the wall

Deposit

Once we have agreed a design and a price I will then create a sketch and send you a digital proof for your approval. If you are happy to go ahead then I usually ask for a 50% non refundable deposit with the remaining balance to be paid on completion of the painting.

How long does it take?

Paintings take approximately 3-4 weeks once deposit has been paid depending on the size.

Delivery or Collection

Once completed the painting can either be collected from Cefneithin in Carmarthenshire or sent out via courier. Price for courier will vary depending on the size of the painting. A price for delivery will be given before the painting is started.

Price

Prices vary slightly depending on how much detail is involved but begin at £340 for a 12 x 16″.  Paintings on paper will have mount surround so it will be larger ie a 12 x 16″ painting will have a 16 x 20″ mount to fit in a 16 x 20″ frame.

 

Framing

Framing is not provided in the cost of the painting.  If you require framing then this will be an additional cost which can be discussed.

A canvas painting is able to be hung straight on the wall, however if you require framing of the canvas then this can be arranged.

Paintings on paper are delivered in a high quality white mount and backing board ready to be framed.   Framing of these paintings can also be arranged.
