Below you will find important information regarding the commission process. Please read carefully before proceeding & if you have any questions regarding terms & conditions please contact me using the tab above.



portrait commission terms & conditions

Drawings may be produced 'portrait' way up (tall and thin), or 'landscape' way up (wide & short).  
  1. The orientation of the drawing will be left to the artist's discretion unless otherwise specified when making your commission.
  2. Please note prices quoted on the proceeding page are for one subject within the composition.
  3. *An additional charge for additional elements within a composition maybe required if your chosen commission has an additional subject, more of the body/figure or a background. These charges are due to the increase in time required to render more complex compositions. This charge will be agreed and paid along with the deposit before work on the commission begins.
  4. Commissions are only undertaken after deposits & any agreed additional charge are paid.
  5. Each deposit is held until work is completed. If, through no fault of the artist, a commission balance & P&P costs are not paid in full within one month of its completion the portrait will be cancelled and the full deposit, inclusive of any additional charges, will not be refunded.
  6. On completion of your commission you will be contacted and asked to return to this website to settle the balance or complete payment by posting a cheque or pay via BACS. Please note cheques can take 5 working days to clear and should be made payable to 'Mark Coombe'.
  7. Completed artwork will only be dispatched once the balance, which includes postage & packaging, has been paid & monies cleared.
  8. Commissions are posted first class, Special Delivery Next Day and unmounted in a postal tube.
  9. Due to my artistic approach and the physical properties of media used, the outcome of a commissioned drawing or painting is likely to move beyond a 'photorealistic' copy of a photograph. Colour, hue, texture, light and tone may be manipulated at the artist's discretion in order to present a subject which focuses on personality and character.
  10. When commissioning artwork, especially portraits, the client is paying for the time, materials and expertise to create the work. In the unlikely event that a client is unhappy with the commissioned drawing or painting, the artist may offer to alter where possible the commission. The artwork should be returned to the artist at the client's expense. If the client decides to reject the outcome of the work, on returning the artwork to the artist, the money paid as the balance will be refunded. All monies paid as deposit, *additional element and postage charges will not be refunded.
