What are other artist’s experiences with commissions, and how do you go about pricing a commission.For example, I quoted $50 an hour for 6 hours on a super yacht taking photos of 45-50 people to be included in the painting.I quoted for 2 days for developing the concept and liaising with the potential client and choosing the final designThen I quoted a price for the actual painting.I have been painting for 35 or so years, and have done commissions before, but this commission was quite complex in that he wanted the 45-50 people to be included in the painting.I am very interested in hearing how other artists handle commissions.July 27, 2016 at 10:56 pm #73981 nadinecParticipantDid anyone respond to you on this? Just recently hooked up with this website so am just reading the forums.Is the client expecting realistic representation of these 45-50 people or just the suggestion of them? If the former, sounds prohibitively expensive. Granted, if he’s got a super yacht…How did this turn out for you? Curious.Author PostsViewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total)You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
