Fees are for an unframed pastel on pastel paper - sizes are approximate depending on aspect of the subject.
I can supply frames but only if paintings are collected in person due to the fragile nature of shipping glass.
I have given an idea of what subjects work well with which sizes, but you can choose to have smaller if you like. I would generally recommend going smaller if your photo is not the best for clarity and I will do my best to create a portrait from it. Please see my terms and conditions below for more details on this.
Sizes are the actual image area size.
8" x 6" from £150 (especially suitable for small dog or cat head portrait)
10" x 8" from £200 (suitable for two small cats; two small dogs; whole cat or dog; pony)
12" x 10" from £250 (suitable for larger dogs, two larger dogs or more than two cats; one horse)
14" x 12" from £300 (Several subjects; two horses)
16" x 14" from £350 (several subjects; several horse portraits)
There will be extra charges for more intracate markings and more detailed backgrounds depending on complexity.
Please add an extra 25% for a bridle, headcollar and whole figure/s on all sizes.
Two dogs or more can be painted on 10" x 12" size upwards - please add 50% per subject
Two or more horses can be painted on size 16" x 14" only - please add 50% per subject

Lorna Lancaster is currently unable to provide framing. If the customer requires the unframed commission to be posted the customer agrees to pay a reasonable charge for this. Alternatively the customer may collect the painting from the artist at a mutually convenient time.
Although a rough timescale for completion will be given and every effort will be made to meet this, the customer accepts that no guarantee can be made for completion by a required date and the artist will not be liable for any losses or inconvenience occurring if completion is delayed.
The customer accepts that if the supply their own photographs and they are not the best quality and more suitable ones are unobtainable, Lorna Lancaster will make every effort to ensure a good likeness and make any reasonable adjustments required by the customer to improve the likeness if possible. If the painting is not a good likeness or the style of painting has to be more “impressionistic” rather than detailed, due to poor quality of the customer’s own photographs, this will not give grounds for rejection of the commissioned artwork on completion.
