Questions & Answers

What motifs are possible?

If you want an art copy, there are no limits to your ideas and wishes. You are welcome to send me several photos, which I then combine into a draft. So you get an idea of how the finished painting will look and can make any changes or adjustments.

Before implementing the commission painting, I will provide you with one or more drafts so that you can decide at your leisure whether you like the design and it meets your expectations. I will make sure that the design is as realistic and detailed as possible, so that the final result meets your expectations.

If you are satisfied with the design for the desired image, I begin with the implementation on your painting. In the process, I work with high quality materials and proceed carefully to achieve an excellent result.

When do I pay for the art copy?

When you order an art copy, full payment is due as soon as the order confirmation is received. Upon receipt of payment, I will begin the implementation of the art copy and keep you informed throughout the painting process. You will receive regular photos of the work so that you can track the progress of the painting and make adjustments as necessary.

When the painting is completed, you will receive a final photo. If the painting does not meet your expectations, 50% of the order amount for materials and labor will remain with the contractor. However, I am committed to providing you with a work of art that fully satisfies you and will be happy to answer any questions or make adjustments.

Please note that each art copy is an individual and unique work of art and may not fully meet your expectations due to personal taste preferences or artistic differences. However, I will do everything in my power to ensure that you receive a high quality and unique piece of art that you will enjoy for a long time.

What materials are possible?

Let me know in what size & with what material you want your art copy painted. I will be happy to advise you for the appropriate technique. The following materials are possible: oil paint, acrylic paint, pastel paint, pencil, tempera paint, pigments, varnishes, watercolor, etc.. Since all techniques of painting are treated equally in price, you do not pay extra for this.

What payment options are available to me?

Online Bank Transfer. You simply transfer the amount directly from your account and receive an invoice & proof of purchase.

Cash payment. You can pay for your commission painting in cash.

How long is the delivery time?

The delivery time depends on the effort & size of the oil painting. For a motif less elaborate work with fast-drying colors, the waiting time is about 20 working days.

For a possible framing and shipping of the commissioned artwork must be added another three to five working days. Larger paintings in oil paint need a little longer to dry before they are ready for shipment. Here the waiting time is between 20- 30 days plus shipping time. The insured shipping is Germany, – and worldwide.

What do I need for an order request?

With a request I need the desired size of the image & a description of the desired motif. The best way is to send me the desired motif by e-mail.

Have art copy painted – this is how it works`s

With an art copy and the appropriate image motif, you will give your rooms sophisticated aesthetics. Art copies have been popular since the beginning of the last century and have lost none of their beauty in this time. You can get your favorite motif with an art copy in a large or small format – perfect for setting creative accents and as a source of strength.

On an art copy, an abstract landscape in extraordinary colors comes into its own, while an acrylic painting with the last vacation motif stimulates our dreams. With your painted wish motif you provide a meaningful ambience in your four walls.

All styles and motifs

All art copies make it not only with very many different motifs, but also in all sizes and shapes. Square canvas prints in 100×100 cm are eye-catchers that fit anywhere. Rectangular, or serial canvas prints in 160×120 cm, on the other hand, are ideal to hang over the sofa or the kitchen table.

Color depth and contrast

For an art copy I use only materials that meet the highest standards of color depth, contrast and purity. Due to the surface structure of the canvases, the art copies create a haptic materiality and transform your living space into a place of liveliness. Your commissioned painting zb. you can order from me in different motifs and choose individually in terms of format and framing.

Art copy as a commission painting

In a simple way you can have your individual art copy painted. You determine the image size and select a desired – motif. I optimize, for example, your photo template and make designs if necessary. Thus, a classic photo becomes a perfect art copy.

Unique works of art

With oil paints hand-painted art copies are also valuable unique copies that do not exist a second time. All art copies are provided with a varnish after the conversion. This gives the pictures a higher brilliance. Each art copy remains as sublime as on the first day for a long time. This is ensured by UV-resistant colors that retain their color depth. For an art copy from my studio you need in principle no separate frame. Because each canvas painting is also painted on the sides, so that already the covered stretcher wonderfully replaces any picture frame. If desired, I frame your painting with a suitable frame.
