Circa 2005? Charcoal
Okay, so question: If you wanted a commissioned portrait of you, by me, along the lines of this, how much would you pay, realistically? I’m curious.
It’s difficult to say – the above picture is ever so good but I have no idea what art like this costs. I think as with any artwork, it’s worth what someone will pay for it. But your picture is ever so good. £100? I really have no idea – I hope that price doesn’t offend!
No worries about offense at all! That’s exactly why I ask, not to appraise the work, but to see what people’s budgets would be like.
I will pay for a portrait of myself probably about 30 for pencil. 100 if you dram me as an amazon warrior riding a bengal tiger with dragon wings.
Oh and that pencil also depends on how big it is. Were I to commission one such picture- i wouldn’t know what to do with one…
I just paid for a “portrait” of my husband and I in pencil for 30. And, although it is very good, it’s not as detailed as this. So, I’d say anywhere between 35-50.
$125…. But how big would it be?
Good question. 18×12 or so?
I really like this. Great post.
Thanks for the input guys!
