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