ADJUSTMENTS
 

The client can request 2 reasonable adjustments within the agreed upon price within the aproved concept design.

If further adjustments, outside the concept design are requested, a fee of EUR 950 per adjustment will be added to the final price

 

You will be provided with a digital mock-up of the piece for your approval upfront, before the painting process starts.

A Mock Up is a concept for me to use within the painting process. It will not be identical to the finished piece as i am an intuitive artist and would like to keep my freedom and decision making in my art creating process, as this is the juicy part of the process.

This intuitive part is a very important aspect of the process and can not be created upfront in a source/example.

SUBJECTS
 

I will decline the following subject matter : 


- copyrighted characters
- very realistic portraits of family members ( i like to use my creative freedom in my painting process ) 

´

I have the right to turn down a proposal/request if i feel we are not a ¨Match¨

PRICING
 

When we agree on your commission request, the price is a fixed price that we agreed upon, unless you require further adjusments

The artist, Nanda Boukes, reserved the right to increase commission prices in the future.

A commissioned artwork is customised to your needs and wishes and therefore takes a significant amount of preparation and time on my part, therefor, custom pieces are priced higher than some of the available paintings listed in my shop/online gallery

YOUR REQUEST / PROPOSAL

I have limited spots in my calender for commissioned pieces.

 

I will contact you through my email sacredsoulart@outlook.com regarding the requested commissioned artwork

ETIQUETTE BETWEEN ARTIST / CLIENT
 

Offering commissions is a VERY SPECIAL experience and I will do everything to make it a special and joyful experience throughout the process.

Here are the general terms and conditions regarding etiquette between us.

  • I encourage a timely responses to emails and invoices

  • Requesting additional adjustments/alterations beyond the agreed concept design is not allowed unless  permission is granted with an additional fee.

  • I dont do tight deadlines, tight deadlines will be refused  !
     

  • Also, frequent emails with the intend to speed up the process are not welcomed
    This even may delay the completion of the artwork.... i can only create a magical painting when i am not stressed out and chased around ;-)

RETURNS etc.
 

All original purchases including commissions are final as your (custom) piece is personalised, comes with a special gift from me to you and I personally pay to ship the piece via courier to you. 

 

The 50% deposit secures your place in my commission calendar and pays for a portion of my time as the process often takes a while and takes me out of my natural creative flow..

 

The 50% deposit is non-refundable.
