- My Shop
If you would like your very own Vanessa Stone original of a building or place that holds great significance for you, then I can make a unique commission for you! I can include personal things too, that can range from pet cats and dogs to wellingtons on a doorstep. A personal commission is like nothing else. You simply can't buy one off a shelf in the high street, its a piece of art tailored especially to you.
An A4 original, mounted size 30 x 40 cm starts at £250
An A3 original mounted size 40 x 50 cm starts from £350
An A2 original, mounted size 50 x 70 cm starts from £550
Wedding & Birth commissions montages start from £500 for unframed A3, 40 x 50 mounted piece
All commissions are supplied unframed, window mounted in archive quality mount board in a soft white. Each piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and will be ready to frame. All commission prices include Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed postage and packing - a signature on receipt will be needed.
What happens next - the commission process:
Simply contact me via email or telephone on 07981 503383 to initially talk about your ideas for the commission. This stage is really important as we get to pin down things like size, price, specific details to be included as well as the deadline. I may need you to provide a range of photographs of a venue, or I might be able to visit the venue. Please allow 8 weeks before the commission is needed to start this process as I often have a waiting list for commissions. 30% of the commission price is due at this stage as a deposit via cheque/BACS or Paypal.
I then prepare three sketches of the proposed composition of the commission which I then email to you for you to choose one design. If there are things that need adjusting or tweaking, then this is the stage to really it right as its from these sketches I will develop the commission collage.
The cutting and making begins! I can send you progress pictures if you would like, though people often wait for the excitement of the big reveal. Whatever you would like, I am happy to do. When the piece is completed, I send the commission via Royal Mail Guaranteed (it will need a signature) to your selected address and the final remainder payment (70%) will then be due. This can be paid as before by cheque/BACS or Paypal.
