I welcome Private Commissions and love to paint bespoke for people.  Over the past 20 years I've completed many works for families, businesses and individuals for all sorts of occassions.   During the 90's I worked by commission almost solely so am well versed in getting in all the nitty gritties that make a painting so special for you.  

FAQ's are below.

Below are some paintings that I've completed to a brief.  To chat about yours, call me on 07891 698 847 or email me on info@samanthabarnes.co.uk

Can you put in people that are dear to me?

Yes and no.  I'm not a caricature painter but I can absolutely pop in figures that were there.  As an added bonus, I can also add in your children!  By sending me some images, we can get creative about whom we add in - what about your beloved dog?!

What sizes are they?

I work in a variety of canvas sizes.  The prices are below.  Obviously, the bigger the painting, the more figures I can add in and detail too.  I find that a really nice size is 30 x 30cm (see above).  Am happy to work landscape or square as you wish.

Can I have my painting framed?

Yes, I have a selection of framers that I work with and it's often good to have the artist select the frame for you.

How much does it cost?

Of course, each painting is different and the final prices for your piece are determined by the amount of painting hours I estimate it will take.

As a rule of thumb, for an unframed painting the prices are:

30 x 30cm  £350

60 x 60  £495

80 x 80 £600

Framing costs vary but are around:

30 x 30cm  £100

60 x 60cm  £120

80 x 100cm  £140

Can I pay in instalments?

Yes, I'm happy to take up to three payments for your work no problem.
