As a standard I work on a white Fabriano Artistico Hot Pressed Watercolour paper, Strathmore Bristol Vellum or Smooth paper (270gsm) or white or coloured Clairefontaine pastelmat surface (360gsm), all of which are of a very high quality. Clairefontaine pastelmat is available in a variety of tones and I would encourage you to review the colour choices online if this is of interest to you. My basic fees are based on paper size and are an indicative quote for a portrait with a plain or simple tonal background:

 

Graphite portrait on Strathmore paper

 

27.9cm x 35.6cm (11 in. x 14 in.)                  £150

35.6cm x 43.2cm (14 in. x 17 in.)                  £250

48.3cm x 61.0cm (19 in. x 24 in.)                 £375

Coloured pencil or pastel portrait on Strathmore or Fabriano* paper

27.9cm x 35.6cm (11 in. x 14 in.)                  £225

35.6cm x 43.2cm (14 in. x 17 in.)                 £350

48.3cm x 61.0cm (19 in. x 24 in.)                £550

 

*Fabriano paper sizing varies slightly from the Strathmore sizing shown here

 

If you have a different surface size in mind please let me know and where possible I will work to a larger or smaller scale. When choosing the size of your portrait please consider that the overall size of the portrait will increase by approximately 2.5cm to 5.0cm when mounted and a further measure depending on the width of the frame you opt for. 

The price of a commission may vary if the image is very complex, there is a detailed background scene or there is more than one subject in the picture. Each commission is unique and any variation from this basic fee will be discussed and agreed with you at the outset. On average, a portrait will involve between 40 and 60 hours of work. If you wish to have more than one subject in the portrait please add 20% to the price of your chosen portrait size. Please contact me to discuss your specific requirements. 

 

The prices shown above include postage for the UK. Your completed portrait will be enclosed in acetate with a protective crystal paper sheet, placed on a mountboard and packed in an attractive grey folio. You will also receive a certificate of authenticity and guidance on how to look after your portrait.  The postage will be tracked and sign for special delivery. If you require global shipping please contact me for price conversions and shipping costs.
