THE STEPS IN COMMISSIONING AN ARTWORK FROM SIMONE READ
If you are considering commissioning an artwork for the first time, it can be intimidating…. but mostly, it is an engaging, collaborative and exciting experience.
Simone meets or chats with you to explore your space and discusses the placement of your artwork. She talks colours, atmosphere and size, identifying your innate style and taste.
Simone will display a suitable composition using your own references or her findings and research of a particular area or species of Eucalyptus tree. Simone loves conversations and builds relationships with her clients to gain an understanding of the importance of composition, placement, colour and light for your new artwork.
Simone will provide you with an all-inclusive quote to complete the art commission. If you are happy to go ahead, Simone does not ask for a *deposit. This way, she can produce your artwork with the freedom she needs without any creative constraints. If the end result is not what you imagined, there are no hard feelings, the work goes into her stock or represented galleries.
*deposit may be required if commissioned through one of the represented galleries.
Simone orders your custom Australian made canvas or linen which she allows 7-10 days for production. She then commences work keeping you well informed with the artistic process of your artwork. Simone sends regular updates to you, messaging via your preferred platform. Timeframe is usually four to six weeks to complete your artwork depending on size.
Once Simone completes your work, she meets you onsite* (nervously awaiting your reaction). The unveiling of your work is followed by a big ‘CONGRATULATIONS - YOU ARE NOW AN ART COLLECTOR’.
* Within the Sydney metro area. If you are located regionally or interstate, please contact Simone.
