Pet portrait prices

The costs depend on technique, size and complexity. Marjolein has experience in many materials, like oils, pastel, watercolour, charcoal, pencil and miniatures in acrylics. The pricelist below is based on one animal with a spheric background.

Multiple animals
Adding a detailed background or extra animal is possible and costs extra per item. How much depends on the size of the portrait; see the pricelist below. Marjolein always designs a mock-up first to show you if this meets your wishes. We check of the actual mutual sizes of the pets are correct and if their posture complements each other and their characters. The effect of background colour, adjusted details like posture of ears, removing or adding toys/belts, will become more visible to you. Read more on how does it work?

To conserve a portrait for many generations to come, the artwork needs to be framed. Marjolein can arrange this for you, but isn’t an obligation. Keep in mind that the actual end size will be enlarged when a mat is needed or not. The frame size of oil paintings is the same as the panel/canvas size, adding only 5-8cm on each side. All portraits in other paint- and drawing techniques require a mat and glass to prevent the artwork from touching the glass. The actual end size will then be much bigger than the ordered portrait size. The best glass to use is UV resistent, known here as museumglass. It’s amazingly crystal clear and almost invisible.

Though this dog is posing in front of his portrait, up to 80% of the ordered portraits are created in memoriam, mixing photo’s to a new design for the portrait. Feel free to send your reference photo’s to get a quote or idea what’s possible. Contact

Pet portraiture, cat paintings by Marjolein Kruijt

Delivery time & payment

The delivery time depends on choice of technique, materials, complexity of the portrait and other waiting commissions. Count for at least 4 months for oil portraits, since they are painted in many layers, each needing to dry first before she can continue. Other materials are instant dry on completion and ready to hand over to you. Do contact her on more accurate delivery times in case it’s of importance for you.

Note: In case of a birthday or other special anniversary, do contact Marjolein to discuss possibilities. Speed-commissions are sometimes possible, if choice of technique allows.

On payment: Paypal , creditcard connected to paypal, or Bank transfer are possible. A 50% deposit is desirable. The rest upon completion. A quote for postal costs will be added on top.
