Commission a Painting

Before enquiring about commissioned paintings, please read the following guidelines.

Do you have a special place, a home, a garden or a view from a window you would like to have transformed into a painting?

I am available to create original commissioned paintings, and complete several commissioned work every year. If there’s a place that is important to you, consider having it painted.

Works can be completed “en-plein air” on site, or from photographs.

On site paintings can be scheduled at any time of year. Basic travel expenses (mileage and/or airfare, and for extended stays accommodation and meals) will apply in addition to the price of the commission, to be agreed on in advance.

Great results can also be achieved from photographs. Multiple photographs of the subject would be helpful, and is recommended. 

In an ideal situation, a day long site visit for the completion of some plein air studies, combined with photographs taken, will be brought back to my studio as visual reference for the finished work. Daily rates and travel expenses may apply.

Options for size and format, surface – either stretched canvas, canvas board or masonite panel – as well as options for framing and shipping are discussed and agreed in advance.

Prices start at R1,200 for a 20 x 20 cm painting, to R30,000 for a 100 x 100 cm canvas for example, with the price scaled according to the size.

50% of the commission price is due on agreement, with the balance due at delivery.

Let’s start with a chat about your ideas: size, colours, budget.
