I would absolutely love to do a painting or drawing for you!
In general, a watercolor painting will be around $1,750 and an original drawing will be $250 (along with the video of me doing the drawing using both hands). The average turnaround is 1 month.
Here is a quote from Tom after receiving a commissioned portrait his wife had me create of their family:
Please contact me if you are interested in commissioning me to create a watercolor painting or drawing for you or a loved one.
To get started, email Colin directly (with “Commission” in Subject) at Colindarke@gmail.com
In general — 4 easy steps:
Current Timeline: I am currently accepting commissions, and in general a commissioned watercolor will take approximately 2 months and a commissioned drawing will take 2 weeks (you may be able to expedite the work at an additional cost). When we start planning out the piece I can give you a better timeline commitment, which will be memorialized in the contract.
Contract: Here is a sample contract: Commission Contract CTD
Pricing: I am currently only creating works on paper in the following sizes and for the following prices:
If you have a specific subject matter (family portrait, family pet, or certain landscape), I would ask that you send me several pictures and/or videos of the subject matter. That will allow me to get familiar with the subject matter and use all of the reference materials to create a compelling composition with my style. After I have had a chance to review the reference materials, I will send you a couple sketches and proposed color palates.
