Commission info

Gabrielle Marlow’s painting commissions include your chosen landscapes, Animal Portraits, Pet Portraits, your favourite Flora and Fauna, Gardens, Homes and Wedding Bouquets.

These paintings are real artworks, handpainted from your most prized photographs and hand signed by the artist. They will become a valued gift for yourself, your family or your friends.

Here are the Simple Steps for Commission Process.

  1. 1. Contact me
  2. 2. Take some photographs or if the animal you would like to have painted has passed away, find the best, most detailed photograph you can. If you need a bit of help on how to photograph please look at Photography Tips.
  3. 3. Email or post the photograph or come and see me in person.
  4. 4. I now choose which one I feel would make the best portrait and do a preliminary composition and email this to you.
  5. 5. When you give me the OK, we discuss which medium would look best, either oil, water colour, black and white pencil, or colour pencil
  6. 6. We decide on the price and you then pay a 20% deposit. I accept credit card, which is great for overseas clients, or direct transfer, cash is fine, too. Take a look at the Pricelist to get a good idea of the cost of your painting. Please Contact me to get an exact price.
  7. 7. As part of my service I email you with the work in progress and can also put this on Face Book. You can also drop in and see how it’s going. It’s all relaxed, friendly and straightforward.
  8. 8. When the artwork is completed and you would like the painting to be framed we can discuss which would look best. Luckily for us my husband Simon has a picture framing business, so framing is not a problem.
  9. 9. Your finished artwork is securely wrapped and sent to you in the courier or if you live nearby you can pick it up.
