Commissioned portraits pricelist

The costs depend on technique, size and complexity of the portrait. The pricelist below is based on one animal with neutral background. Questions? Contact Marjolein for personal feedback concerned your wishes.

Multiple animals
An additional background and (or) an extra animal in the same portrait costs 10% per item extra. Marjolein will design the composition first, to ensure that the proportion of the combined elements are correct. If you have any wishes added, you can ask Marjolein what’s possible.

Bespoke framing
A portrait should remain in excellent state for many generations. To conserve a painting or drawing correctly, it should be framed for protection. Marjolein can arrage a fitting frame, but it’s not obligated to order one through her. A frame for an oil painting has the same size as its panel or canvas. Glass or a mat isn’t necessary because of the applied varnish with UV filter. Other techniques do need a mat and glass. Best is museum quality glass, which is crystal clear and has an UV filter. Due to the surrounded mat and frame, the outside measurements get bigger, up to 20 cm.

Delivery time

The delivery time depends on the technique (drying time), complexity and size of the portrait. And how busy Marjoleins agenda is. Count 2-3 months at least for oils, especially since it needs to be thoroughly dry before transportation. Other techniques are ready straight after completion. Ask Marjolein in case you have a specific request or delivery date for an anniversary or Christmas.

Note: Order in time for special occasions! The delivery time can take up to half a year for larger works, when multiple commissions come in at the same time. Speed-delivery is sometimes possible, when Marjolein has the time. In all cases, it’s best to ask Marjolein the current status of her agenda.
