Commissions

The journey of meeting you, discovering your style and passions, bringing your space to life with a piece that moves you, is why I love what I do.

Commissioning a painting is an exciting and wonderful process. Having an artwork created especially for you? Well, it can’t get much better than that!  My aim is to provide original artworks to complement the unique nature of your home, working environment, or commercial space.

A lot of people like the idea of commissioning a painting, but they’re uncertain about the collaboration process. My clients have been delighted with their final artworks. I think good communication is the key and I enjoy guiding you (as much or as little is needed) on each creative journey.

Let me provide you with more information to help get the creative ball rolling.

  • You have an idea for an individual painting, or body of work, that you would potentially like me to create for you. Perhaps you’ve seen something of mine you love and you want it either in a different size or in different colours. Rest assured, there’s no obligation for you or your business to follow through with a commission process after simply enquiring about an idea. Here are some tips to get you started:
    • Take a look at my portfolio – which painting are you particularly drawn to? Is it the colours, the composition, or the size that you like? Why?
    • Where is the painting going to go in your home, office or commercial space?
    • What is the space like – what colours have been used to decorate? Is it formal, casual or a particular aesthetic?
    • Do you have a special place or landscape that means something to you? I’d love to paint it for you!
  • I pretty much paint any size from 30cm x 30cm (12”x 12”) and up to 180cm x 124cm (72” x48”). I also have a lot of commission canvases handmade as they are usually for a specific location and a certain size is required.
  • Do you have a particular budget in mind? Please note that a deposit of $100 is required to reserve your spot and this is non-refundable. A 30% deposit is due when I start your painting and the final payment is due once it is ready to be shipped to you. I provide progress updates along the way and make minor adjustments according to your feedback as we near the end of the process.
  • All my paintings are coated in a clear vanish that is archival and will protect from dust and splashes for many years to come. I wouldn’t recommend hanging artworks where they will be in direct sunlight but some sunlight is ok.
  • Commissioned artworks can take between 2 – 4 weeks depending on the waitlist, and the number required.
  • I can arrange a frame and assist with choosing one that both complements your artwork and will work in the space where the painting will be hung. I tend to offer options in Tasmanian Oak, American Oak, Oak or Walnut.

I hope this is helpful! I’d love to hear about your idea or answer any questions you may have – let’s chat! You can email me at rachel@rachelprinceart.com.au, call me on +61 (0) 439 791 966.

Here’s what my clients are saying about working with me on a commission painting …

“We loved the process of commissioning the artworks. The energy and enthusiasm Rachel brought to the whole process was fantastic. She was always happy to clarify things if we weren’t sure and we had checkpoints along the way to confirm that we were all on the same page. This gave us confidence that we would be satisfied with the outcome.

Very delighted. All 5 of us were excited to see them up on the wall. Different members on the family will comment at random times as to how much they love it.” Emma B
