For commissioned art, the prices vary by size, difficulty, detail, number of people in a portrait, background and other considerations.
One consultation is free locally, other meetings are an additional fee.
Postage, handling are the responsibility of the buyer. Insurance is recommended . I am not responsible for any damages in transit.
On an average for portraits with no details in the background :
11 x 14. - 550
12 x 16 - 650
16 x 20 - 850
Those are the best sizes for face and shoulders. Larger ones probably are waist or full body portraits.
18 x 24 - 1,500
24 x 24 - 2,500
The above are estimates. I usually work from photos. No studio portraits used unless you have a signed release from the photographer . If you or a friend takes it, make sure there is contrast, shadows, on the face so that it has depth and interest.
Situational paintings of people, places or things are often very meaningful to clients. If you send me the photo, I will negotiate a price with you.
Thank you, hope to meet you soon.
