Contact Charlie via email to secure your spot on his calendar. Depending on how many commissioned paintings are schedule ahead of you, it could take several weeks or months for Charlie to start your painting
Charlie will reach out to you to discuss your custom painting. You will confirm all details of the commissioned painting covering everything from color and size to shipping and payment details.
All Paintings are created on a gallery wrapped canvas and are delivered ‘ready to hang’ unless otherwise specified in your concept and collaboration discussion with Charlie.
The subject of the painting is more than likely going to be determined by you. Size and Color are often times determined by your overall involvement in the commission. Often times clients choose to keep their involvement at a minimum and leave the size and color up to Charlie’s creativity. However, you may have a specific spot in your home or an empty frame you’re looking to fill so, specifics are important – ether way, the commissioned painting will be spectacular.
Overall, the more details you have ready for Charlie the better. For example; If you are commissioning a pet portrait, you should include many photos (the bigger, the better and from different angles), note any unique features, and always check out Charlie’s Portfolio to reference any features, styles or colors from other paintings by Charlie.
Depending on where you are located, Charlie will either deliver your painting to you in person or will ship your painting via transportation delivery service like FedEx, UPS (or other preferred carrier if necessary).
50% of the total cost is due before starting the project. Fee covers materials and invested time in researching the commission. Half of the deposit is non-refundable should the transaction not make it to term. A more lenient agreement may be arranged depending on the commission specifics.
