These are some of the questions I am frequently asked. If your query is not answered below, please feel free to contact me.
How much is a commissioned drawing?
This depends mainly on the size of the drawing. As a general rule, a size A5 is usually £45 and the larger A4 is £75.
However, as there are sometimes commission requests which would involve a lot of intricate detail, these would take longer to create and therefore may cost a little more. It is easier to discuss your requests with me before I can estimate the final cost.
Can you personalise a drawing for me?
Absolutely. Many of my clients have special family events they would like me to illustrate, or favourite hobbies or quotations to include in the drawings they would like.
I am very happy to discuss your particular idea, or you may find inspiration in the Gallery pages of previous commissions.
PLEASE NOTE: My Painted Bear reserves the right to refuse any commission.
Will you donate something to my Charity / fundraiser or help me spread the word about it?
I’m sure you will appreciate that I get many such requests. Although I’d like to help, it’s just not possible to donate something to everyone who reaches out with their cause or event. I privately support causes which are close to my heart.
What size is a drawing?
My commission work is usually A4: that’s 210 x 297 mm (8.3 x 11.7 inches), or, the smaller A5 size, which is 148 x 210 mm (5.8 x 8.3 inches).
The sizes above are the paper size before I add the mount.
With the mounts added, the sizes take an A4 up to 15” x 11”, an A5 up to 11” x 9″ and a 7” x 5” up to 10” x 8”
How long will it take for my drawing to be ready?
I have an order book and when you request a drawing, I take payment up front to secure your place in it. Then, depending on how many drawings I have on order, I will be able to give a rough guide as to how long it will take to draw for you.
