Re-create a memory of a special moment or subject with a commission painting or drawing.

Using a collaborative approach with each client, Julia’s painting and drawing commissions accurately portray a subject matter in a way that a photograph cannot. Every portrait, pet portrait, still-life, waterscape, or landscape she creates showcases her passion for art and extraordinary talent.

GUIDELINES FOR PAINTING OR DRAWING COMMISSIONS

General Information

Specific times during the year are busier than others for commissions. To avoid disappointment, start the process as early as possible. 

Oil or acrylic portraits are on canvas or cradled panel – please specify which you would prefer at time of order. Paintings do not require framing or glass.

Pencil and coloured pencil portraits are on quality, heavyweight, acid-free paper. For best preservation, portraits should be underneath glass (not included).

Reference Photos

If local to the Winnipeg and southern and central Manitoba area, Julia can travel and take the photographs herself and make on-the-spot notes and sketches if necessary. 

Although painting from a live sitting is ideal, it’s sometimes impractical in this busy world. When reference photos are used instead, provide several, high-quality, high-resolution photographs of the subject matter. 

Please note the desired look that you are after in your commission. Julia is also able to make suitable suggestions. One to two rough sketches will be provided for your approval before the commission painting or drawing process begins.

Pricing Details

Prices listed are in Canadian dollars and are based on one face; additional faces/subjects are extra. Sizes noted are in portrait mode, but landscape mode is easily accommodated for additional faces or subjects. Custom sized commissions are also available; contact Julia to discuss details.

A 50 percent, non-refundable deposit is required at the beginning of the process. Once the portrait is complete, some mutually agreed upon changes can be made to ensure your complete satisfaction.
