You have so accurately captured our hearts in colours and in canvas. Thank you, Susan, we are elated!
It is a privilege and honour to create bespoke artwork for someone! If you like my style, I would love to work with you to create the perfect painting!
Commissions for 2021 is now open, I can only create a limited number of commissions a year, so book yours now! Please read through the information and send me an email with the information to get a quote and timeline.
Decide on the size of the painting , you might want to take a photo of the place where you would like to hang the art if applicable.
Think about the style you are after. Take a look on my website or my instagram account (@susanbenceart). Take screen shots of the work you like most, it can be a combination of a few different paintings. Tell me what you like about them and what not. Also think about the composition and colours. If there is a colour that you would like to avoid, please mention it.
I also need to know the subject. I only paint landscapes, still lifes and abstracts. Share your thoughts and ideas. Include photos if you for example want a landscape painting of a special place. If it is abstract, what do you want it to say....it might be a single word like "hope" or a phrase. Your still life might tell a story- your grandma's table or flowers from your garden. I do not copy previous commissions or paint exact duplicates of paintings from previous collections, but I can create something similar to a previous painting.
Now send me and email () with the following
1) The location Where you live, town and country. If you live in the UK it is possible
to ship your painting on pre-stretched canvas, but if you live outside of the UK,
I will remove the canvas from the frame and roll it for shipping and you will need
to frame it.
2) The measurements of your canvas. I price my work based on the size. Include a
photo of where you would like to hang it, if applicable.
3) The style: Attach the screenshots of paintings from my website/instagram that
you like. Tell me what you like and dislike.
4) The Subject: Tell me about the subject. Attach photos if applicable.
I will get back to you as soon as possible with a quote and timeline.
If you are happy with my proposal, I will send you an agreement and you will make the
first pament via paypal. Once I start your painting you will receive two progress shots
and a final photo for approval. I want you to be 100% happy!
20% of price on acceptance of quote
50% of price in the agreed month that I start your painting after you have approved initial composition and colour sketch.
30% on completion
Looking forward to hear from you!
We have been admiring Susan's art for a long time and moving house was the ideal opportunity to commission 3 landscape paintings. Each etched with a scripture close to our hearts. I can sit and stare at them for ages....Just love them!
I had commissioned Susan to paint one of her abstract paintings for my wife's birthday. Not knowing a lot about art, I really did not know how to express what I had in mind. Susan was very responsive and guided me all through the process. Asking the right questions and journeying with me to understand exactly what I wanted her to capture on the canvas.
Susan kept me updated on her progress and it was unbelievable to see how she transformed a blank canvas into something that now has not only formed a centre piece in our house but has captured a centre piece of our hearts. I think the next commission is closer than we think....
