"While a typical commissioned work could cost you from $5,000 to $30,000 or more..."
Really?!?! A TYPICAL commissioned portrait would cost from $5,000 to $30,000?? Typical?? Well, I guess I've been offering my services at a severely discounted rate. I'd like to take this opportunity to announce that I am raising my prices...
Admittedly, that would be great to charge $5,000 for a portrait, but I don't think that would fly this early in my career. I just can't get over their use of the word "typical." That is NOT typical pricing; that's misinformation. Here's what I charge for original oil paint pet portraits on gallery-wrapped canvas. This is pricing for a one-subject portrait with a non-detailed background:
- 8x10 - $100
- 11x14 - $200
- 16x20 - $400
- 18x24 - $500
Anyway, I will be raising my prices after the new year rolls around, but it won't be $5,000. How's $4,999? Have a wonderful day! :)
