Commissions

Sarah specialises in commissions, creating really special pieces for her customers. Everything is tailored to suit your requirements which makes it super easy to turn any subject you love into a truly unique tribute. 
The simple process allows you to commission a painting from a photo; animals and family pets are very popular. Sarah's unique style of painting immortalises any animal photo into a stunning work of art, or transforms your average school photo into a portrait to cherish forever.

 

 Commission a painting by Sarah Taylor   

                                                                                                     

How it works:
  1. Find reference photos for Sarah to work from. Whatever the subject, these need to be in focus and clear, with the subject in close-up rather than full height. So the face needs to be large, and the eyes nice and clear.
  2. Contact Sarah; say Hi, and explain what you were thinking of. This is NO – OBLIGATION contact
  3. Sarah will discuss your options and make suggestions for you to get the most out of your special commission.
  4. If you decide to go ahead with your own special custom painting, then Sarah will take a small deposit, and schedule your painting in the studio.
  5. 50% of the cost due as Sarah starts the painting she will confirm the composition over email and get cracking.  She will send you regular updates as the painting progresses.
  6. Once the painting is finished, Sarah will send you the final photo along with a request for the final payment.
  7. When payment is cleared, Sarah will ship the painting with a courier service.

      Commission options - 1 subject on a painting:
          1. 60 - The most popular option is my 60 cm painting which is the same size, format and price as the majority of my original paintings. It is the optimum size for subject detail and allows enough space for some good splashes and pattern. The painting is on a specially prepared board and framed in a contemporary black frame. - £1450 
          2. 40 - If you’re stuck for space, the smaller option is my 40 cm painting which is displayed in a contemporary floating frame. The subject will take up more of the space, with a little less detail and pattern. But it will still look awesome! - £950
          3. 100 - “The Biggie” 1 metre square painting – this is a cracker! If you want to really make a statement, this sexy beast is what you need! This format gives us plenty of space for some serious splashing, and ultra-detailing work. It will blow your socks off! This beauty is painted on a chunky canvas so no need to frame - £2400 (However framing is available if you wish!)  Currently UK only 
          4. Custom shapes are also available – if you have a particular place in mind that would suit a different shape painting, then contact Sarah and she will be able to provide a personal quote. 
          5. 2 subjects on 1 painting. This isn't usually recommended because the costs involved are more than 2 smaller individual paintings as essentially this is 2 paintings but more difficult! If you would really like a joint composition, contact sarah for prices.
      All prices include free worldwide delivery. ( Biggie UK ONLY)

            1. Can I have more than one subject on a painting?
              Generally Sarah would always keep 1 subject per painting unless there is enough space between them to isolate each within the image. Having more than one subject per painting doubles the work, so the price will increase accordingly. We would always recommend creating a set of paintings if you have 2 or more subjects. Please contact Sarah for a personal quote.
            2. Can I choose the colours?
              Yes, Sarah will discuss colours with you when you’re going through details – if there are any colours you don’t want Sarah to use you can let her know too! It’s a good idea to have a look at some of the colour schemes in Sarah’s paintings and see which you like best.
            3. What sizes are available?
              It is possible to have any size painting to fit your space, but the minimum size is 40 cm square, as below that doesn’t give enough space for Sarah to work.
            4. How long does it take?
              The actual painting time is usually about a 2 weeks (depending on size) but it can take a month or 2 to fit your commission into Sarah’s schedule. If you need the painting for a specific date, Sarah will do her utmost to meet your deadline, but give her as much help, by booking in as early as possible.
            5. How much is delivery?
              Delivery is included in the price 
            6. Can I duplicate my painting?
              Copyright of the painting always remains with the artist; this means you own the physical painting but not the rights to the image. The artist is free to make prints from any commissioned work.

        Percy the squirrel

        Absolutely love the framed canvas of Percy which arrived quickly and was well packaged.
        Percy has brightened up our hall with his gorgeous colours and cheeky face!

        Everyone loves Percy

        Wanted a feature piece of art for a newly decorated room, Percy is perfect, large high quality print and frame.

        Great talking point and very striking

        A secret Birthday gift for my 77 year old big brother

        I love the art work and would love to see you working in your studio. John had to have Badger, a lovely Border Collie he bought while visiting our late sister Anne Williams, 16 years ago from the farmer at the top of Wasdalehead he had a sarcoma in his left back paw, and didn’t think an otherwise healty dog would enjoy having to run about on 3 legs.
        Badger’s son is 15 now and Blue a rescue dog is 4 and go for daily walks in Surrey of 15 -19 Kms so keeps them all very fit, John is bringing Badger’s ashes back to Cumbria soon, he stays at Parkgate .......John is a Cumbrian and loves coming for visits.
        Good luck with all your painting and the quality of the print is outstanding......I’m thinking of maybe treating myself soon .
        Best wishes, Kate Mann.

        Delighted She Was

        I recently purchased the Yorkie canvas for my son’s 18th birthday. However, prior to wrapping it up I showed it to my friend who turned an impressive shade of envious green. Knowing that her birthday was approaching I surreptitiously narrowed the field down to Xander being her favourite and ordered it. Her face was split from ear to ear with the world’s largest smile that day when she saw it. My son on the other hand, also not knowing what I had purchased, mouthed the word, “wow” before going green with envy and vowing to steal it. She does not yet know where Xander’s resting place will be in her house but it will require a complete redecoration of whichever room. In the meantime, here he is on my mantelpiece.

        A striking picture

        Mr Bojangles looks great watching us from one of the feature walls in our lounge. We’ve just had it decorated in coastal blue colours and Mr Bojangles is the perfect colour for the room adding colour and depth. It’s a very striking picture and perfect for us as cat lovers
