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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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....
