More about the Process for Commissioning a Painting

 

Free Consultation via phone, email or in-person to discuss what you're looking for.

 

If you decide to go through with commissioning a painting after the consultation, I will draw up a simple contract stating the terms for the commissioned painting. (timeline and deadline, cost, description of your envisioned piece, framing options, delivery/shipping agreement) 

 

I will retain the copyrights to the piece I create for you meaning that I am allowed to post photos of the work and use it in my portfolios. 

 

A 50% deposit of total cost of the painting is due in order for me to begin working on your piece.

 

The deposit is to ensure that my materials for creating this piece are covered. It is non-refundable. 

 

I will send you a small sketch of your painting before beginning on the final piece. 

 

I will ensure that you are happy with the direction the painting is going. 

 

As I work on the painting, I will send you updates and ask if there is anything you would like me to add or change. 

 

I want to be sure that you are 100% happy with your piece. 

 

The remaining 50% of total cost due when the painting is finished. Upon receiving the final payment, I will ship or deliver your painting. 

 

Shoot me an email at shelbyleighdesigns.contact@gmail.com or give me call or text at 6015204763 to get started.

I like this painting, but... it's the wrong colors! 

I recreated a similar painting to "Cherry Blossom" and used colors that my client needed to match her home.
