Commissions

I often get asked if I paint commissions and the answer is “absolutely, positively, definitely,  YES!”

I love working with a client to plan a special piece.

Pets and other animals

I have painted lots of pets, including cats, dogs, pigs, lizards, snakes and birds!

All I need is a few clear photographs (photos from your phone are fine), some close ups showing the eyes are really useful as they are so important in capturing the spirit of an animal.

I have also  painted pets that have passed away to provide a lasting reminder of a beloved companion.

I can paint other animals on request including wildlife and farm animals. Please have a look at my shop and completed paintings in my portfolio.

Landscapes and florals

I have painted a wide range of landscapes and florals as commissions based on the colours, style and size required from 14 x 19 cm up to 56 x 76 cm and anything in between.  These are the unmounted and unframed sizes so once a mount and frame is added they can make a beautiful statement.

I can also paint wedding bouquets as a beautiful  reminder of a special day.

Feedback

I have met some wonderful people through my art and had some amazing feedback on my work that makes all the hard work so worth while.

“OMG this is the best thing ever. Crying happy tears. I miss him. Thank you so much, you have captured him perfectly and this will be treasured forever.”

“Beautiful painting and a stunning likeness.”

“Thank you Joe, you have captured her beautifully.”

Love my paintings, thank you. Just what I wanted.”

“Oh my goodness. Utterly stunning. You have capture him so perfectly.  Thank you so much this will be such a treasured piece.”

"Stunning.  I can’t stop looking at it. You have captured her perfectly.”

Pricing

Prices start from £100 plus P&P for a single pet portrait measuring approx A4 size unmounted.

A small floral commission costs from £50 plus P&P depending on the complexity of the piece.

I ask for a 50% deposit before I start a piece with the remainder to be paid on completion.

If you’re thinking of asking me to paint something for you  please feel free to contact me via the email address art@joeswatercolours.com and we can discuss your requirements.

The copyright for all my paintings remains with me as the artist even once they are sold.
