Prices & info

Cards, prints, swimming hats etc.

I have a shop on Etsy at www.waterdrawnart.etsy.com where I list a selection of prints, cards and swimming hats with my own designs on them. I can also make prints to order if there is a drawing that I’ve done that you can’t find there.

Commissions: Please email me to discuss prices – this is only designed as a starting point so you feel encouraged to contact me!

If you’d like a drawing, painting or design done especially for you, I’d be happy to discuss this with you. Just email me, and I will usually be able to give you a fixed price first, after finding out what you would like, so you know what it will cost. I can also help you with suggestions if you are not sure what you want.

Here’s a guide to the sort of price I charge for artwork – these are quite vague, as a lot will depend on what exactly you would like.

Digital drawings:

Generally £90 – £155 depending on the complexity of the image. I can work from a single photo, or a combination of several photos and imagination to make up the scene that you want to depict. The image is drawn on a tablet, so the finished product is a print, using gallery-quality paper and inks. Usually I make just one print, which you will have, but I can make multiple prints if you would like more than one, at a much smaller additional cost than the original image.

Paintings:

Most of my paintings are studies of underwater figures, if you’d like to be in one of my paintings I’d be happy to discuss this. Painting commissions are typically £350 – £600 (unframed) though a lot depends on size etc and miniature painting could be a lot less. I work in watercolour, sometimes with gold leaf and other metal leaf. I will usually need a very good photo to begin with – it doens’t need to be perfect, but it does need to be interesting. If you are nearby (I am based in Somerset, UK) I can also meet and take photos of you first to work from.

Swimming hat designs, t-shirts, logos etc:

Artwork generally from £100 upwards, and the price will depend on how complex the image is. I would be happy to discuss what you’d like and give you a fixed price usually after showing you an initial sketch.

Yes, I can work from photos:

A lot of my artwork is based on a combination of photographs and imagination, and I can create a scene from several photos if you have different photos of several people. Please bear in mind that the more complicated the composition is, the more it will cost! I also take underwater photos at Vobster Quay, which usually has lovely clear water and if you would like to join me I can take photos to work from.
