Art and other creative things by Helen Melhuish

Commissions

I accept commissions for ink and watercolour paintings, ink drawings, pencil drawings and pyrography. Fulfilling commissions is one of my favourite things to do and something I consider a real privilege.

How to commission a picture

Email me a photograph (or more than one) of the picture you'd like me to paint. Try to send a photo you are happiest with as I can only work from what you send me! I tend to remove things like wheelie bins and street lights. I am happy to use artistic licence so feel free to request a blue sky if there isn't one in the photograph, for example. Once commissioned, if requested, I can then email you a pencil sketch or pen outline to check you are happy with the layout before completing the picture.

Commission prices for pictures

Prices start at £50 and depend on size and complexity. Typically I can produce an A4 ink and watercolour picture of a building for £50. Prices for miniatures start at £20. I require a 50% deposit in advance, the balance to be paid immediately upon completion. Prices are for unmounted pictures using high quality materials and include free local delivery (Glossop and surroundings) or Royal Mail Signed For UK postage. I am happy to quote for providing mounts and frames. For overseas postage prices please contact me.

I'm always happy to discuss your requirements so please feel free to get in touch for a chat.

Pyrography commissions

I have carried out very many pyrography commissions from memory boxes, tea light holders, coasters, personalised stars and hearts, buttons, to plates, bowls, spoons and even furniture! Have a look at my Pyrography page for a few examples. To discuss your requirements please contact me.
