commissions

 

 

Ian regularly undertakes commissions of all kinds and welcomes client led projects. He has painted many buildings to commission, ranging from traditional granite houses, to holiday homes abroad, restaurants and shop-fronts, towers, castles and palaces. He has also painted landscapes, cars and boats, illustrated articles in magazines, designed cards, adverts and logos, and painted images which appear on mugs, t-shirts, tea towels & even vehicles, all to commission in Ian’s unique style.

Ian has also been commissioned to design window grills for an exclusive car park, a giant Robot made from used electrical items and a variety of creative elements for the Household Recycling Centre in Jersey.

THE COMMISSION PROCESS

Contact Ian by phone (01534) 485168, on his mobile 07797832847 or send him an e-mail to studio@ianrolls.co.uk. Let him know what you have in mind and he will then arrange to meet you to see the house, view or whatever the subject is. Ian will fill out a simple form with the commission details and take a 20% deposit. He will make a series of photos or arrange a time to come back to make the drawing or painting on location.

Ian paints the majority of commissions in watercolour on thick hand made paper (600gsm) which will be mounted on acid-free board with uneven ‘decel’ or torn edges of the watercolour paper showing.

Ian can also undertake commissions in other media and on unusual supports, for example oil on driftwood, so don’t hesitate to ask for an estimate if you have a special request.

The size of the painting is flexible and will determine the cost. Here is a list of guide sizes & prices which are for an unframed mounted watercolour (scroll down to the foot of this page for info about frames):

6 x 8 inches (152 x 203 mm) = £500 

8 x10 inches (203 x 254 mm) = £600 

10 x 12 inches (254 x 305 mm) = £700 

12 x 14 inches (305 x 356 mm) = £800 

13.5 x 16 inches (343 x 406 mm) = £900 

15 x 18.5 inches (381 x 470 mm) = £1000 

16.5 x 20.5 inches (419 x 521 mm) = £1200

18.5 x 23.5 inches (470 x 597 mm) = £1400

20.5 x 27.5 inches (521 x 698 mm) = £1600 

22.5 x 31 inches (572 x 787 mm) = £1800 

A watercolour which is bigger than 22.5 x 31 inches would require a special paper order which can be quoted for by request.

The format of the paper size is also flexible, so a long thin or square format painting is possible or a framed picture size to fit a specific space.

Ian can arrange framing in the solid oak moulding (shown above) which he has specially made exclusively for his own paintings. The frame has a flat profile and comes in two widths, 40mm or 30mm (both 30mm deep) and can be given a natural sanded finish, whitewashed or colour washed to suit the painting.

A price guide for framing in this moulding, including standard glass & finished ready for hanging is given below. Please note the size given is for the painted image. When mounted and framed the finished picture will be significantly bigger.
