Commissions by Meredith Moss
Creating custom artwork for you gives me the opportunity to help you realize your vision by seeing things through your eyes. You will have your choice of mediums either graphite or colored pencil. Colored pencil is obviously in color and is laid down in many layers which is time intensive. Because of this, colored pencil commissions are more expensive. Graphite will have the same great quality image, but in black and white which requires less time and materials meaning it is little less expensive. To ensure the piece will last a lifetime and beyond, all the materials I use are archival and lightfast.
We begin our work together when you download and complete the attached form. It is intended to help you think about the options and priorities in designing your artwork. When you submit the completed form, you will also include reference photos. If you don’t know how to answer a question, just leave it blank. We’ll discuss everything during our initial video consultation call. After our conversation, I’ll provide you with a “mock-up” of the composition and a written agreement of the details. After receiving a 50% installment along with your acknowledgement of the details, I will be able to begin your commissioned artwork. If there is no waiting list, expect approximately eight weeks for completion and framing of your final piece.
Artwork commission pricing is based on size, medium, and the complexity of the subject. Below are general prices based on a single subject. However, please keep in mind that to ensure likenesses details are important. This means that we don’t want to squeeze a lot of subjects into a tiny space. We can discuss your options during our initial video conference call.
