Initially, all I would need is a brief description of what you're looking for - including the size etc, and especially how soon you need the painting by. I would then get back to you with a rough estimate of the price and time scales.
Next, I would doodle some rough sketches of the intended finished painting. Once we're all happy, and in agreement on both the pricing and the proposed painting, I would then make a start on the artwork. At this stage, a third of the agreed price of the finished painting would be required as a deposit.
As a rough guide, the price for a privately commissioned painting can range anywhere between £250 - £3,000 depending on the complexity of the artwork, the size and the time it takes to complete. I would always try to be fair and affordable, yet paintings do take time and patience as I'm sure you're aware.
If you would like your painting to be professionally framed, this can be arranged too. I have an excellent framer friend who can do this for you at a reasonable, additional cost.
