Carl Syres - Artist, Harrogate, Pencil Drawings

COMMISSION WORK

If you would like a picture created of a specific person, animal or pet, I would be pleased to undertake your commission artwork.

YOUR FINISHED DRAWING
Typically my work is produced on Strathmore Board 35 x 43cm (14 x 17"), with an image size of around 20 x 29cm (8 x 12") positioned centrally.
This affords a nice amount of white space around the subject. At this size a human portrait is a able to be reproduced to a size whereby the detail, expression
and likeness can be achieved. If you would like a full or half figure, this may require working to a larger finished size.

Your picture will be mounted and framed to 58 x 47cm (22.5 x 18.5").
If you have a specific choice of mount or frame colour, please let me know at the time of ordering.

If you have an idea or request for a picture that is larger or smaller than my standard offering, I am happy to discuss your ideas with you.

YOUR REFERENCE PHOTOS
In order to get the best possible results a large image is required. The larger the better. In order to be able to include as much detail into your final picture
the original must have a similar level already for me to work with.
I am happy to discuss your potential photos and can, if necessary,
shoot new photographs, where needed in order to have the best possible reference.

CAN YOU DRAW ANYTHING AS A PICTURE?
I specialise in drawing people and animals, but am happy to consider other types of subjects.

Animals, Cats, Dogs etc.
£125
People, family, famous portraits etc.
£150

For drawings with 2 or more subjects, there may be a requirement to produce a larger scaled drawing and therefore a larger overall framed piece.

All my work is produced in Graphite and Carbon pencil.


WHY DOES IT COST SO MUCH?
It takes between 12-20 hours with pencil on paper to produce your artwork. I work very hard to create a really accurate likeness, detail and textures.
This time costs money, but I am sure you will agree, its much better to have a really great picture that you can enjoy for years to come.
Besides, ask how much an electrician, plumber or other service provider would charge you for that many hours work :)

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Depending upon workload, I can normally complete your artwork in around 7-14 days.
If you have a particular deadline, please ensure you discuss this at the time of ordering.


DO THE PICTURES COME FRAMED?
Yes, I always frame the work, so they are presented in their best possible way to you - ready to hang. They come mounted on card and are sealed
and fitted with hanging wire on the back. As standard, the Mount Board and Frame are Black. If you require different coloured frame and/or mount,
please let me know at the time or ordering your artwork.

WHAT NEXT?
Get in touch! Send me your ideas and pictures and we can either work electronically by email or we can sit and have a chat over a coffee and discuss your picture ideas.
I don't ask for payment up front, you pay me on completion.

Cat Drawings, Big Cat Drawings, Pets, Dogs, Wild Animals, Famous People, Pop Stars, Family Members, Children, Mammals, Bird Drawings.

BIO |.
My earliest memory of drawing in Pencil is from when I was in school and about 9 years old. It was the first time I can recall been noticed for doing something, that I thought was 'natural and easy', yet created much interest and pleasure to my peers and the teachers.
