The commission process is uncomplicated, enjoyable and the best way to get a one of a kind artwork that will meet your needs while saving money. Nicola has created and sold over 200+ commissioned pieces directly to clients locally, nationally and for international collectors.
- Commissions are undertaken on a price by negotiation basis. Options for size, format, surface, as well as location, framing and/or shipping are discussed and agreed upon in advance.
- One of the many benefits of directly dealing with the artist, means you are not paying any additional intermediary gallery costs which is quite a substantial saving!
- All artworks come with an authenticity certificate for valuation and insurance purposes.
- A 50% deposit is required prior to commencement and the final balance is payable upon completion of the artwork, which normally coincides with delivery.
Do you have a special place, a home, a holiday property, the location where you were married, the view out your window, or some favourite scene that you would like to see transformed into a painting?
Multiple photographs of a particular subject are helpful, and recommended.
Highly detailed portraits of both humans and animals based on your photographs. Transform special memories into a unique visual experience that captures the essence of a moment in time, a unique personality or loved one. An innovative idea for those 'hard to buy for’!
You may want a commission using a variety of photos (eg. people brought together to make one group portrait), Nicola can make those changes for you that you would have liked in your photograph. Full-body or detailed backgrounds on any portrait may require a custom quote.
A good photograph should match the following criteria:
- High resolution (clarity of detail)
- Focus on face (the face should cover at least 50% of the photograph) • Soft light (no flash)
Matting and framing would need to be completed by a reputable framer that the client organises or by the artist for an additional cost.
You also receive :
- 1 complimentary print of your portrait
- An authenticity certificate for valuation and insurance purposes
