Soft Pastels Portrait Commissions Pricelist

All pricing excludes frame, courier & insurance.   Free delivery for all customers in Bloemfontein.

Graphite Pencil Portrait Additional Notes:

If you want to combine photos or make changes to original photo reference, I may charge up to R1000 Additional Design Fee.
Pricing depends on the extent of the work to be done.  Simplistic changes that doesn’t acquire structural changes can be less or completely free.  But major structural changes like adding new body parts, can be charged up to the maximum design fee.
Pricing allocated is for simplistic or no backgrounds, detailed backgrounds like cityscapes, additional figures etc. – can cost an additional fee.

The reason for this is that it adds additional time to the whole drawing process and my pricing is allocated to the standard time a normal drawing will take.
Welcome to contact me via WhatsApp, if you any specific queries.

Graphite Pencil Portrait must be framed to protect it from dust, water and other elements.  However, if you still want to add a frame I don’t offer framing services, but can have it outsourced to one of my local suppliers.

Because Framing adds to the weight, fragility and size of the painting, which therefore will increase the pricing of your courier fee – I kindly suggest that you have it framed at one of your local suppliers.

Secondly, Framing is a personal taste element, most professional framers offers a variety of 100 or more different frames.  From plain to elaborate Rococo Style.  Anything to suit your taste and budget.
