Commissioned Artwork – What Are The Benefits of Commissioning My Own Unique Painting?

As a UK-based abstract artist, I’ve had the pleasure of embarking on countless artistic journeys. Commissioned paintings are as unique as the wonderful individuals who commission them. There’s something truly special about crafting a piece of art that not only reflects my passion but also resonates deeply with you.

So, why consider commissioning a piece? You get to be a co-pilot in the artistic process. You are guiding the direction and witnessing the transformation of colours and shapes into a masterpiece that mirrors your vision and is tailored to you.

Commissioned paintings are available in any size to suit all budgets. Framing options are also available.

Buying art is a big decision – so it has to be perfect, right?? Perhaps you can’t choose between a few you really like? Or you love one in particular, but wish it was just a different colour or a bit bigger?? Whether it is inspired by one of my previous works or something brand new – why not commission a colourful, bold abstract art painting by Helena Tarn Art? I can commission work to any size to suit all budgets. Numerous framing options are also available.

I love working with people to make their ideas and visions a reality.

So, how do you commission artwork?

It’s a lot of fun! The timeline to commission an original artwork takes a couple of months from start to end. It begins with getting in touch and establishing some key requirements for your painting such as size, colour, subject etc. Once we have agreed a concept, I will take a 50% payment as a deposit. This is so I can purchase materials and allocate some hours to use for planning, consultations with you and initial painting.

You will get the opportunity to provide feedback during the process to ensure that it is what you are expecting. I don’t want you to have any unwanted surprises along the way.

The painting will be signed, sealed and ready for shipment to you in 1-2 months (all this will be discussed at the order stage). It will be framed if requested and ready to hang in your home.

How much does it cost to commission a painting?

Ah yes, the big question. How much will it cost me? Most artists are willing to work with all budgets. This is something I will discuss upfront with you. Commissions usually cost more than a ‘ready to purchase’ painting. This is because a client has often chosen a specific subject or colour palette unique to them. This may not necessarily work with the artist’s current body of work. In addition, before paint is even added to the canvas, I spend many hours discussing and sketching out ideas with you. We want to make sure that the piece is absolutely perfect. There is a lot of behind the scenes with a commissioned piece of art.

Generally, the bigger the artwork, the more expensive the painting. But it doesn’t always work like that. Sometimes, a large painting is requested, but if the subject matter is quite minimalist, it would take less time to paint than a small, but incredibly intricate artwork. The best advice is to discuss your vision and budget with me so we can come up with something affordable that you will love.
