of my artworks are produced in Artist Quality Oil on Canvas or board and are sent
to you unframed, unless requested otherwise. Canvas
works are gallery wrapped where the painting is continued on the sides
of the canvas or painted one colour to frame the image so that it can be
hung straight on your wall without the need for framing. You may still
frame the work if you would like. Works produced on board will need to be framed before hanging. For international commissions, canvas works will be sent unstretched and will need to be stretched or stretched and framed by the buyer.
normally take 4-6 weeks from receipt of deposit and
photographs/description, however the delivery time is dependent on the
number of commissions in my waiting list and the time of year. Please
email for availability of 'rush' commissions.
are based on the time it takes to complete the artwork, which is
determined, by size, level of detail, the medium used, and framing
requirements. Please email me if you want to be sent a general price
list, or to discuss your requirements. If you already know the details
for the artwork, please send an email with the details including photographs and
your individual preferences for the portrait (size, medium, subject
matter) and I will provide a personal quote and my recommendations if
you are unsure which medium or size to choose. I try to respond to all
emails within 24 hours. If
the commission work is for a portrait, the quality and suitability of
the reference photographs may also affect the price as it takes
considerably longer to create a portrait from poor photographs;
therefore all prices are quoted individually. If you are unable to obtain a good photo, I also offer photography service for those in and around the Newcastle region.
deposit of 25% of the quoted price for commissions is required before
commencement of artwork. This deposit is non-refundable once work on the
commission has been started. I want you to be 100% happy with your
artwork, therefore the balance of payment is not due until you have
viewed the completed artwork via email and have confirmed your approval.
Balance of payment is required within seven days of email approval, and
the completed artwork will be shipped to you on receipt of payment. Payment
can be made by Direct Deposit/Internet Transfer, Australia Post Money
Order, or PayPal. International payments can be made through PayPal.com.
All payment and contact details will be provided on receipt of your
Shipping and Postage
Australia: $15.00 by Australia Post depending on
destination and size of artwork. Registered Post and Insurance Included. International: $20.00 - $40.00 (insurance additional according to destination) Copyright Please
note that no copyrights are conveyed with commissioned artwork. If you
require a piece for reproduction purposes, please email me for further
a courtesy to my clients I do not sell prints or otherwise benefit
financially from commissioned artwork unless agreed upon prior to
commencing the artwork; however I retain the right to display the image
on my website galleries and to use the image for display and promotional
purposes. If you have any major objections to this, please let me know!
For all commission work: Take as many pictures as possible. For
portraits (pets or people): Make sure there is plenty of light,
avoiding direct sunlight as it alters the natural colouring of your
subject. A bright overcast day is ideal. Try to get clear eye shots
showing their colour and shape. For pets, take photos at your level and
at different angles. Zoom in to capture the texture of their coat etc.
Photograph your pet when he or she is relaxed, as this will enable them
to show off their true character. If your pet is deceased I can still capture them with the photos you have.
