portrait prices and postage


Below you’ll find prices for some standard sized portraits with a plain background, plus the relevant postage charges. Portraits are supplied unframed. For a custom quote for an irregular portrait size (to fit a pre-existing frame for example) or for a larger size than I’ve listed, please get in touch. Adding background detail will cost extra but I will need to discuss this with you in order to give you a quote.  All prices are in GPB and are VAT inclusive, and in the event of any price rise, the price listed at the time the portrait was commissioned will always be honoured. The only costs are for the portrait and the P&P, and there are no hidden charges unless you are paying by Paypal/credit card (see note below)

  Please note that prices listed are for customers paying by personal cheque, cash, postal order or internet bank transfer. For credit card or Paypal payments, add 3.5% (4.9% outside of UK)

PET PORTRAIT PRICES

Pet portrait prices

Multiple orders: Unfortunately I’m not able to offer discounts if you want to order more than one portrait. This is because portraits are priced according to the time they take me to complete, and there’s no way to speed up this process without compromising their quality.

A guide to UK ‘A’ sizes

A sizes double in size as their number decreases – so, A3 size is twice the size of A4, and A2 is twice as big as A3. For one subject (especially a child) and in a head-and-shoulders format, an A4 size – or similarly sized square – is usually quite big enough. For a full body portrait or for 2 or more subjects, an A3 size or larger will be necessary so that the detail doesn’t get too fiddly to draw or paint. I can give you more advice when I have seen your photo reference as to which size will work the best.

delivery


Delivery informationUK DELIVERY: Postage prices above are given for the Royal Mail’s Next Day Special Delivery service. This is a very reliable service which I’ve used for many years, although just to be on the safe side all portraits are fully insured in the mail. Your parcel will receive a tracking number and require a signature on delivery, so you may prefer to give me a work address. If you are in the London region you can also collect in person if you’d like to arrange that with me. Very large portraits will be sent by Parcelforce. OVERSEAS DELIVERY: I usually use the Royal Mail’s International Tracked service which offers 5-point tracking. If you prefer your portrait to be sent by courier such as UPS, this can be arranged.

when to pay

For UK and Republic of Ireland customers, payment is not usually required for pencil portraits until you have seen and approved your portrait, except in the case of very large commissions which may require an advance deposit. As soon as your payment has cleared, the portrait will be sent out to you. For paintings a deposit of 35% is payable in advance. You can also buy a gift voucher for someone else.

Your portrait’s safe arrival will be fully guaranteed – please read the T&C page for further details.

payment methods

Pay by internet bank transfer (BACS), personal cheque, to postal order to receive the prices listed above. You can also pay online with most major credit and debit cards though please note that these payment methods carry an additional 3.4% handling charge (4.9% outside of the UK)

Customers paying by Paypal for a finished portrait may use the button above to make a payment (Please wait until you’ve received your portrait and your invoice)

giclée prints for pencil portraits


If you’d like to buy an extra copy (or more) of your pencil portrait, I can have a high-resolution giclée print made for you, which looks exactly like the original pencil drawing. Costs given below include all postage and packaging if ordering from the UK (if ordering from abroad please get in touch for delivery information) Read more about giclée prints here.
