Please be aware that a painting can take many weeks or sometimes months to complete. In addition to this, oil paintings should be protected with varnish, and this is done 6 months after the painting has been completed.
If you would like to commission a painting for somebody's birthday in a few weeks time, then it would really be a good idea to consider having it done for the following year.
Prices are related to size, and a commissioned painting will cost the same as the examples that are for sale in the galleries section. Postage and Packing is £12.
