Let me make something special for you
I do accept commissioned paintings from time to time.
This page guides you through the process and gives you some helpful hints on the considerations to think about when commissioning art with me. Read the detail below to discover how to commission a painting.
Please note that currently I am only accepting commissions from UK based customers.
A few words on commissioning art
Commissioning art is very different to buying a painting off the peg.
Be sure that you like what I make by looking at paintings on my website and looking at my daily posts on Instagram before you commission me. This may seem obvious but I work in a certain way, have a very distinctive style and you need to have fallen in love with my style of painting if you are planning to commission me to make something just for you.
When you commission a painting I spend some time finding out what you would like me to include. We have a Skype call so that we can chat and establish what you are looking for in a painting and we agree the subject matter, size and price. I then send you a contract email that summarises our discussion and describes the painting we have discussed in some detail together with a schedule stating when I will begin your painting. The email also sends the detail of deposit payment, balance payment, framing options and delivery costs.
I am happy for paintings to be collected from my studio to save you delivery charges. If you live near by this is definitely the best option. Shipping and insurance is not included in the price list below.
Paintings on canvas
1 metre x 1 metre/40 x 40 inches £1,500.00
90cm x 90cm/36 x 36 inches £1,400.00
80cm x 80cm/30 x 30 inches £1,300 .00
These prices include all materials and a painting that has been created and finished with two coats of acrylic varnish for protection. The price remains the same for acrylic, mixed media and paintings that include some gold leaf work.
Please ask me about other sizes. Those shown are the sizes that I work in most frequently but I can work to landscape and portrait shapes in any size to suit the imagery that you would like me to create for you.
I can get custom sized canvases made up but this is more costly than going for a standard size. Please note that transporting a 30 x 30 inch canvas is relatively low cost but that anything above this size is significantly more expensive to send to you.
Payment is via invoice that allows card payments to be made to me remotely.
If for any reason after beginning the commission I feel that the painting is not working I reserve the right to cancel the commission. If I cancel a commission I will return your deposit. I want to love the painting before I am prepared to release it to you. To date this has never happened but I reserve this right because I do not want to release work that is not representative of my style or up to standard.
If you cancel the commission after I have started to create your painting you will forfeit the deposit.
Even for bespoke paintings made as commissions all copyright for the artwork remains with me. Purchase of a painting is for personal enjoyment in your home or corporate workplace if this is a corporate commission.
I reserve all rights to make giclee prints, cards and other products using images from commissioned artwork.
Purchase of a painting does not extend to or allow permissions to reproduce or to sell the image to any third party for use on products, prints or any other items. Art licensing of any paintings or imagery by Mary Price is not permitted. All Art Licensing enquiries must be dealt with directly with me and purchase of a painting does not mean a transfer of copyright to the new owner. You can contact me about art licensing using the contact page on this website.
