I opened oil painting commissions towards the end of 2018 and completed two pet portraits at the end of December.
The first commission to be completed was a portrait of ‘Mac’. The client requested that the cat be wearing a witch’s hat and holding a wand in the painting. As the client’s cat was named for Professor MacGonagall in Harry Potter, the wand design is based on the character’s wand.
The oil painting process for this A4 sized piece took about a month and a half to complete including preparation and varnishing.
Commissions Now Open!
Commissions are now open for 2019, for more information and to submit a request please visit the sign up form: https://squibble.wufoo.com/forms/commissions
Two sizes are available:
- A4 ($250 NZD + shipping)
- A3 ($500 NZD + shipping)
For commissions that will be Christmas presents – this year the cut-off date will be September first, 2019. This will allow a good amount of time for the oil paint to cure and be varnished before being wrapped and packaged for shipping.
Thank you very much to the client who commissioned this piece – it was a fantastic experience.
