Process for a Commissioned Painting with Christina Gouldsborough

Initial Consultation

The client's preferences and/or Christina's concept suggestions are considered while deciding on the topic, colour scheme, and size.

The client may supply the object(s) to be painted, or Christina Gouldsborough, the hired artist, may recommend the subject(s).

The aforementioned commission-related features are first negotiated and then carried out in line with the artist's recognized aesthetic and interpretation.

A photo session may be necessary to complete the commissioned artwork of a landscape representation; conceptual art or a pet portrait is ordered, and a proper reference photo cannot be provided.

If a photograph is to be used as the basis for the commissioned portrait, one must be selected by both client and artist and provided to the artist for the duration of the commissioned painting.

Subjects include landscape, still life, conceptual art, and animals. Medium is oil on 1.5"-deep canvas that is gallery wrapped and D-ring wired. All commissioned paintings will be created in Christina Gouldsborough's representational art style using her patented painting method, emphasising colour and detail to heighten emotion and your sense of presence in the painting.

The artwork is first painted in values, followed by several layers of medium and oils, and then at least thee coats of varnish to give it a vibrant appearance.


Like everything of value and quality, producing artworks of a representational style requires significant time.

The length of the fine art commission will depend on the timing of Christina's other events and obligations, the size of the commissioned piece, and the specifics and quantity of themes in the painting that will be addressed before the commission starts.

It could last for a few weeks to a full year.

The cost of commissioned art

During the initial consultation with the customer, the cost of the fine art commission is determined and agreed upon.

The cost is determined by the commissioned artwork's intended size, object complexity, and level of detail.

When the commission agreement is signed, 50% of the agreed-upon purchase price (the non-refundable down payment) is paid.

After receiving this down payment, the commission painting project gets started.

The remaining 50% is paid upon completion before shipment or delivery of the commissioned artwork.

Framing, delivery, shipping, and installation

Unless prior agreements were made before the project began, the client is responsible for any desired framing, shipping, and installation of the artwork.

Contract for an Art Commission

A contract is necessary to formalize the fine art commission and guarantee the respect of both parties.

All information discussed, including the topic, the size and medium of the artwork, the cost, the payment terms, etc., is included in the contract.
