Here is a small sample of some of the horse and racing commissions I've done. I paint them on canvas and will even frame them if you want. I usually need at least 6 to 8 weeks to complete the painting. I work from photos that you supply. To make a payment, click here.
Prices depend upon size, background and composition. A painting of just the horse's head and shoulder and a plain background like in the lower left of the above collage is the least expensive. A full-body conformation painting is more. A racing painting like the Ascot painting on the top right is the most expensive. All prices can be negotiated. I can do any size that you want. The below list is just a sample of how I try to estimate my prices.
The prices listed below are approximate and will give you an idea of how I price my commissions.
Size basic Head and Shoulder Whole body Racing Detailed Background
12 x 16" $1,000 add $300 add $350 add $400
16 x 20" $1,200 add $400 add $500 add $500
18 x 24" $1,600 add $600 add $700 add $650
24 x 30" $2,200 add $800 add $900 add $800
24 x 36" $2,700 add $1.100 add $1,200 add $1,000
Here an example of the way I would price the painting in the top right of the collage. The painting is 22 x 30" which isn't in my size list but I'll just estimate.
Size 22 x 30" Base Price $2,000 + Racing Painting $800 + Detailed Background $750 + 4 additional horses (4 x $300) + $1,200 = $4,750 total cost
I do require 50% of the total payment upfront and the balance when the painting is finished. CA residents must pay sales tax. Prices don't include framing and we pay the shipping.
