So, I have some free time this summer and I've decided to take commissions, both to encourage me to practice and help pay for school supplies next fall. Portraits are my specialty, but I'll do pretty much anything, since I really need to expand my portfolio.
I'm charging $10 for a pencil drawing, $20 for charcoal, and $50 for an oil painting (though these prices may change once I get a feel for how much time each one takes and the cost of supplies, since I've never done commissions before). I'm also willing to experiment in new media, so if you want something different, don't be afraid to ask.
At the moment I'm anticipating a drawing will take me a week and a painting up to three (oils are time consuming) but this is variable too.
I'll take up to two commissions at a time for now, and if demand is high I'll see about increasing that.
Check out my gallery for an idea of what I can do, but please remember that most of what's there are sketches done for class and we didn't have much time for each one. Requested works will be a great deal more detailed and in depth.
If you're interested, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and please include a photo of what you want drawn or painted.
