Original, traditionally hand drawn and painted portraits of animals and people by Kentucky artist, G.A. Wells
Commissioning A Portrait
I look forward to working with you to create a piece of art that you will enjoy for years to come. Please contact me via email on email@example.com with your requirements.
I create portraits in a variety of mediums such as coloured pencil, pastels, and graphite. I use only high quality art supplies with the best lightfastness ratings and only heavy weight acid-free papers with excellent archival qualities.
Upon my acceptance of your commission I will require payment of a 50% deposit with the balance due on completion, before shipping. Deposits are non refundable except in the unlikely case where I have to cancel your portrait, whereby I will refund your deposit in full.
The base prices for my portraits are listed below. These prices are the same regardless of the medium that we agree upon. I would be happy to quote on other sizes and shapes, however I will not accept a commission for pieces smaller than 8"x10" due to the amount of detail in my portraits.
The sizes are based on drawing size, not paper size. Your portrait will be within the paper area to allow a margin of paper around the edge for framing.
These prices are based on portraits with one head and shoulders in the portrait.
I charge an additional 25% of the base price for each additional person or animal to be included in the portrait.
Standard packaging and postage is included for the USA. Framing and a 6% sales tax are not included.
8” x 10” $360
10" x 10" $400
12" x 12" $550
11" x 14" $550
16" x 20" $850
18" x 24" $1200
24" x 30" $1600
24" x 36" $1800
I ask for good quality, clear photographs with high resolution. Digital is preferred but I will be happy to work with hard copies.
My style is very detailed and based on realism, It is possible for me to work with poorer quality images if absolutely necessary, but please be aware that I won't be able to create highly detailed portraits from unclear photos. I will be very honest with you if I do not believe it will be possible for me to work with a photo you provide.
All the prices above include packaging & standard shipping within the USA.
All portraits are carefully packaged to insure your portrait will reach you in perfect condition.
Email me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to discuss having a portrait of any of your favourite people or pets.
