How much does it cost?

It varies by several factors like type, size, subject, but on average - about $100 - $200 for something like a portrait

For more info, we recommend reading our short article:
"How much does it cost to commission art?"

Number of subjects

The more subjects (people, animals, objects, etc.) included in a painting, the more is required for the artist to complete, thus resulting in a higher cost


The more detailed and complex a painting is requested to be, the more time it will take the artist, which usually increases the cost of the painting


Generally, the more experienced an artist is, the more he or she may charge for his or her work
