A portrait of a loved one or favourite place makes a unique and special gift that will be treasured for years to come. If you would like to commission me to do a painting especially for you please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through my fb page MelTing. A portrait of you, a loved one, your pet, your house, your world........ Below are some examples of pet portraits and other commissions I have done. All I need is a good quality photo that shows clearly the details of what you would like me to paint. I paint on canvas board using either acrylics or oil, and draw on paper using ink and charcoal. Prices depend on various factors, such as size, medium, number of pets or people in the portrait. My work starts from £45 for an A4 drawing on cartridge paper and £85 for an 8" x 8" (20cm x 20cm) painting on canvas board. I also do reduced prices for people on benefits and low incomes, please enquire for details. I ask for half the payment upfront and the rest on completion, this is to insure me against a client changing their mind after I have already spent many hours working on a painting. A painting usually takes around three weeks to a month to complete depending on my schedule, however if you need it sooner for a birthday or other special event please do let me know and I will do my best to complete it in time.
