Prices: commissioning a portrait of your animal may cost less than you think.  Pencil or charcoal studies start at a two or three hundred, pastels approximately three times as much and oils half as much again.  However each commission is unique, so it is essential to discuss your particular requirements to calculate an exact figure without any obligation.  Christopher is very happy to work to your budget & once agreed never charges a penny more no matter how long it takes.  Extra animals, complex backgrounds or details add to the cost.

Animal portraits are painted from life when possible. Christopher’s aim is to capture the individual character as much as the likeness.
