The listed price is an indication; the final price will be discussed as it depends on the size of your commission. I work like: no cure, no pay. which means, I make sketches will you are happy with the composition. As of then, I keep you posted with regular updates, which will feel like you visiting my studio frequently to see your commission in progression. Working together brings the greatest joy and best result.
Contact me for discussing an original drawing of a bird (garden-birds, ducks, birds of prey), butterfly scene, koi carp fish, a flower. I work on A3 format with graphite and/or coloured pencils. The original will be send in a strong tube. It will need framing. While I'm at work, after agreeing on the theme and composition, I send photos of the work-in-progress as a means to invite you in my studio and see the progress on your commission. I do not easily accept pet-commissions, other than birds, because I need a real model for studying and I'm not willing to copy photos. Not because I don't like cats and dogs, because I love pets. But to hand over an original that has a soul, I need the see the pet in real. For birds I can visit two nearby aviaries and that helps me tremendous with catching the soul of the animal.
The original will be registered with a 'Certificate of Authenticity' at Hahnemuhle Fine Art Registry (www.hahnemuehle.com/en/digital-fineart/certificate-of-authenticity.html). The certificate is printed on watermark paper and it has a strong but impossible to mess with golden coloured hologram sticker with a number that is registered at My Art Registry of Hahnemuhle's official website.
Who is Hahnemuhle? Hahnemuhle was founded in 1584 in Germany and is the oldest German paper-makers manufacturing company. Hahnemuhle has, to my opinion, the best paper for a variety of ambitions: for photos, prints, originals and certificates. Maybe it is because their premium coating of all artists papers preserves their haptic exclusiveness and guarantees long-lasting true-to detail prints hat meet the requirements of museums and galleries (and mine!). Hahnemuhle's 400 years of tradition and experience has resulted in a world-wide reputation for unbeatable quality.
Certificates of Authenticity do cost time (printing and registration) and money. They are about 4-5 Euros each. I have included them in my prices because I like Hahnemuhle's powerful measure in ensuring that the originals I make and sell are mine.
