Accepting Commissions (portraits)

As practice for my new hobby I will be accepting commission requests.

At the moment I am working only with pencil and on paper no bigger than 8 1/2 x 11.

As I am only a beginner and have done extensive research on this, I will be pricing my work according to size and the number of subjects in the picture. I have reduced my price drastically from what accomplished artists are asking for on their websites.

Examples of my work can be seen in my postings on July 7, 2014 entitled “Art for Sale”, “Sheala” and “City of Toronto”

A general guideline is as follows:

1 subject – 5×7 = $70
1 subject – 8×10 = $150
2 subjects – 8×10 = $200

I can accept photo reference by email and will advise on the length of time it will take to finish the project. I would usually aim at no more that one week.

Please note that prices are for the picture only. There is no matting and no frame and does not include the cost of shipping the final product to you.

If you have any questions, please email me at

Thank you,

Skye McKinnon
