When creating a quote for a custom painting, I take into account how many hours I think it will take to complete and the cost of materials. See below for estimates on popular canvas sizes.
|18 X 24||$300||$215|
|16 X 20||$270||$190|
|12 X 16||$225||$155|
|11 X 14||$215||$145|
|12 X 12||$190||$125|
|10 X 10||$145||$115|
|8 X 10||$140||$90|
Please note: These are just estimates. Final price may vary depending on the project.
Estimates do not include cost of shipping for out of town orders.
Oil vs. Acrylic
I work with both Oil and Acrylic paints. The main difference between the two is drying time. Acrylic paint dries very quickly - I can work faster, but the blending isn’t as subtle as an oil painting.
Oil paints dry much slower. They are easier to blend, and in my opinion result in a richer, more vibrant color. That being said, they take longer to complete and the supplies are more expensive.
If you’re interested in commissioning a painting, we can talk through which option is the best for your subject matter.
