Kassel Südstadt Commission
Commissioned watercolor of a neighborhood in Kassel, Germany

Would you like to commission an original artwork of a subject that has special meaning for you? Perhaps a watercolor of your ancestral city, or an ink/watercolor drawing of your family home?

I do accept commissions on a case by case basis, as long as the subject suits my style and my skills.

HOW IT WORKS

After you let me know via email what you have in mind in terms of subject, medium and size (if possible with a few photos attached*) I will send you a price quote and an estimate of the time needed to complete the work.  

If you accept, I will send you an invoice for 50% of the price. You will pay the remaining 50% upon completion of the work. Your painting will be shipped to you framed and ready to hang in your home, or unframed so you can choose your own frame, whichever you prefer. Shipping is included in the price.

PRICING

05×07 inches (13×18 cm)   €275 framed, €225 unframed
08×10 inches (20×25 cm)   €650 framed, €575 unframed
09×12 inches (24×30 cm)   €750 framed, €650 unframed
10×14 inches (25×35 cm)   €850 framed, €750 unframed
14×20 inches (35×55 cm)   €1,250 framed, €1,100 unframed

If you would like a smaller, larger, or custom size painting, please email me for a quote.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

Depending on the size and your framing preference, it will take me anywhere from a few days to a month to complete your commission.

ALTERATIONS

I will send you a photograph of the work in progress when it is approximately 50% finished. At this point, I will do my best to incorporate any changes you request. Once the work is finished, you are entitled to one minor alteration at no extra cost. If you require multiple or extensive changes, you pay a surcharge of 15% on the total cost not including the frame.
Please keep in mind that there is a limit to how much can be changed in a watercolor before the freshness, which is the medium’s strength, starts to suffer.

* If your subject is in the Netherlands and you don’t have any photos, I can also give you a quote of the additional cost for me to gather sufficient reference material on location.
