Commission Price Guidelines 

(all paintings are done using oil paints)

I work from photographs, the picture format can either be from original conventional film prints, negatives posted to me or from digital files that can be sent via email. I am also happy to come and take photographs myself subject to an extra charge which would be dependent on the distance I had to travel.

The subject matter can be of family, friends, pets or of a favourite celebrity or pop star, the choice is yours.

I can also use a combination of photographs to produce the final painting if needed. Natural history photography is welcome as long as these are photographs taken personally.

I will do my best to complete the painting within 6 weeks of agreeing the details and receiving the deposit. This may fluctuate depending upon workload and seasonal trends.

All original material supplied i.e. photographs, will be returned with the painting when it is complete.

I am able to work from a variety of photographs however the better the quality of original photograph, the better the result.


A 30% deposit is required with your order. Once I’ve started the painting this is non refundable.

The artwork will remain the property of myself (Paul Charnley) until the balance of payment is received in full.
