Commissions

Do you have a place that’s special to you or a great vacation photo that would make a unique, one-of-a-kind painting? I am currently accepting commissions, and I’d love to work with you on a painting of your very own!

Here’s how it works:

First, we discuss your idea for the subject and the details of the project. We’ll exchange photos that we think would make a great painting. If your special place is within driving distance, I’d like to see it in person to make sketches, take notes and shoot my own photos. If it’s not, I can usually work from your photos. Please note that I don’t include people, animals, structures, vehicles or any human-made elements in my paintings — it’s okay if these are in the photos, I can edit them out in the artwork.

We’ll also discuss the size of the canvas that will work best for you, as well as pricing — price depends on size and shipping/delivery. We work out all the details together ahead of time so there are no surprises along the way.

I work collaboratively with my commissioners, so this is your chance to be part of the creative process! The steps of the project include:

  1. Initial discussion and photo selection
  2. Sketches/studies
  3. Commissioner review (image sent by email), changes if needed, sketch approval
  4. Final oil painting (at whatever size you choose)
  5. Commissioner review (image sent by email), changes if needed, final painting approval
  6. Shipping/delivery

Total time to complete your painting is about 4-6 weeks. Also, I don’t make prints of commissions, that image will be yours and yours alone forever (but I do get to show it in my portfolio). Before beginning work, I require a 50% deposit of the total agreed-upon project price.

I’d love to work with you to make a one-of-a-kind painting of your special place. Please contact me to discuss the creation of your very special painting by emailing me at bob@rjdfineart.com, or calling me at 602.712.9020.

I look forward to working with you!

Bob
