‘How much do you charge for a pet portrait?‘
This is a question I am often asked.
The cost is influenced by many factors: paper size, number of pets, medium and time required for the work.
The larger a painting and / or the more pets included, the longer a painting takes to produce. Plus, larger paper equates to using more materials.
Your Portrait Requirements
When quoting for a pet portrait, it is very helpful to have an idea of your requirements, such as:
- The medium required: watercolour, graphite pencil, or acrylics. You can see examples in my Galleries
- Head-only portrait or full-body
- Backgrounds: extra background work increases the price according to work involved
- Paper size. I offer many sizes to suit different budgets, and these are listed on my Price Guides page.
- Date required (if applicable, and subject to waiting list space)
I’m happy to offer advice if you are not sure on any of the above.
