PORTRAIT COMMISSION

How much does a commissioned portrait cost?

The cost of a commissioned portrait depends on many factors, such as the technique you choose, size of the canvas or paper, format or even the number of people, etc. You can find out the exact prices on the page pricing

How long the portrait will take?

The time it takes a portrait artist to make a commissioned portrait depends mainly on the chosen technique.  For example, an oil painting would take from 3 to 5 weeks, depending on the complexity.  However, a pastel, pencil or charcoal drawing would take from 3 to 10 days.  An express order is also possible for an additional fee. You can also commission a portrait by simply contacting me through the order form or by the following means of communication:

Portrait likeness guaranteed

The portrait cannot just look roughly similar; to me, likeness, realistic quality, and attention to detail in a portrait are the fundamental principles of my work and my topmost priority.

Completely handmade portraits

When commissioning a portrait it is very important to ask the portrait artist if they are willing to demonstrate the stages of the work process, as there are many sites on the Internet that offer handmade portraits, when in reality the photos are processed and printed on art paper or canvas. In these cases, advanced graphic editors are used to edit the photos, which imitate pencil drawings or oil paintings, with subsequent treatment using special gels that imitate the relief given by brushstrokes.

At your request, upon completion of the portrait commission, I can send you photos of the progress of the work, which, apart from guaranteeing that the portrait has really been made by hand, will serve as a nice souvenir.

Which artistic technique to choose for a commissioned portrait

There are no good or bad techniques for commissioned portraits, all techniques are different, with unique properties and qualities. Moreover, the choice of the type of portrait should be based on your specific wishes and take into account the possibilities of economy and time.

If you want to commission a long-lasting portrait of a significant person, you can wait for 1 or 2 months and have set aside a significant sum of money for this purpose … Excellent! In that case, oil paintings on canvas are the best choice, as this wonderful technique allows the artist to create a work that has such photographic accuracy as to not only represent reality as is, but also add a truly vibrant energy to it. In addition, it is also extremely durable and will surely last for a very long time!

If you have little time and a limited budget, but want to give something special as a gift, a pencil or charcoal drawing will be the right choice in this case.

And if you are in a similar situation, but you have more time and can afford to invest more money, then you could order a delicate pastel drawing.

These commissioned portraits will leave you and your loved ones with plenty of positive emotions for a very long time.

Before choosing Mr. Cabiró, I did intensive research throughout the websites looking for just the right portrait artist to request a custom piece of my wife. I could not have chosen a more professional person and uber-talented artisan. Originally, I was contemplating commissioning only 1 portrait to hang in the new living room of our new home, but, at the last minute requested 2 pieces; using 2 different highly pixelated photographs (portraying maximum possible detail for Mr. Cabiró to use) of my wife and her beloved horse, Mr. Cabiró made both photos into superb masterpieces that reduced both of my in-laws to tears on Christmas morning; they now own the other framed portrait. I feel very blessed to have found Mr. Cabiró during my research and will forever be grateful for his stunning contribution(s) to my family.

This was a piece I wanted to give to my sons father on his first Father Day. I would like to say this is the best master piece of a portrait I have ever saw someone do in such details. I'm very very please and delighted with the outcome of Mr. Eugeni Cabiró work and talent. He communicated with me very well throughout the process. He was very very patient and kind. Any questions I had he got back to me in a timely manner. Definitely, I would recommend him to anyone. Can't stop smiling cause he makes your art work look so real. Moreover, I would like to say Thanks again for this awesome portrait I'm so very grateful for.

I was very nervous about having a portrait done from only a photograph so i looked a MANY artists on before settling on Eugeni Cabiró. The portrait was done quickly and he did not mind making a small change for me. It looks exactly like the photo I sent in. Amazing and I could not be happier with the finished portrait. I can't wait to have him paint my 5 other grandchildren! Thank you so much!

Words can't express how much I love my daughter's portrait!! It is beautiful and looks exactly like her. Eugeni is extremely talented. I couldn't be happier! Even the custom frame shop thought it was gorgeous and wanted to know who did it. I highly recommend. Definitely, I will be ordering more from her as my daughter ages. Shipment was extremely fast too. Thank you Eugeni!!
