How to Find an Artist to Commission a Painting

Before you hire an artist, make sure that you know what you want to get from the end product. You can expect to receive a handcrafted canvas painting, a digital copy of a traditionally painted piece, or a print of the final image. Whether the artwork is for your home or office, you should let the artist know how long it will take to complete the project. Also, you should let the artist know what the deadline will be. This will help the artist know how to best prepare.

How To Hire An Artist For A Painting?

The first step in finding an artist to commission a painting is to find a local art gallery. If you do not have an art gallery in your area, you can try to look online for local artists. I highly recommend Paint My Photos who specialize in portrait and art commissions. You can contact them directly and discuss your ideas. Once you have a few potential artists in mind, make sure to communicate what you want to get out of the experience.

Once you have a few artists, you should negotiate a price and a deadline. Most artists will require a non-refundable deposit and a signed contract before they can start work. When working with an artist, be sure to keep email conversations between you and the artist. Before you hire an art designer, ask for a rough sketch of the painting. You may need to make changes to the image to make it perfect for you.
