How to commission a painting
Amanda Gorman portrait commission
If you have ever thought about having a painting commissioned, but didn't know where to start, you are not alone! Most people have no idea where to start, and so a great idea for an original piece of art fizzles out before it has a chance to begin.
Commissions are custom paintings that can be done for a collector of just about anything they want. I have painted pets, houses, portraits, and landscapes, but any subject matter can work. I have painted childhood homes, departed beloved pets, bridal portraits, flowers, travel photos, children and grandchildren, and custom work for a specific room and/or color scheme. Commissioned work is limited only by your imagination.
Here are a couple of things you need to do to have a successful commission completed for your space:
1: Find a photo with good lighting and clear images. It is difficult for an artist to open closed eyes or combine two photos, so start with a quality photograph the artist can work with and communicate clearly what you want- colors, mood, size, etc.
2. Communicate your wants with the artist with email or a phone call and look at the artists other work to make sure their style of work is what you want. Ask for progress photos, timelines, payment, etc. so that everyone is on the same page.
