commissions and pet portraits

"As always Paul totally impresses with his pallette and forms, combining exciting and lively shapes and drafting with hues and shades speaking of peace, tranquillity and beauty. I cannot fault his works. In addition he is totally approachable, friendly, and has no hint of the diva about him. If I had more walls I would have more of his works."

Mr B, Liverpool

artbear pricing


A brief guide to prices of original artbear art


As a guide the prices of my art reflect the proportionate size/compexity of the piece and the medium (oil, acrylic or watercolour)


For example, my work ranges in size from tiny canvasses on their little easels, to pieces measuring 1.20m or so in width, some have been created with a complex process of layering etc while some have reached their conclusion easier


However i do believe my prices are very competative and i give good customer service, and my buyers have always been most appreciative of their puchase!


The table below may shed some light on what to expect to pay for an original artbear painting (please note THIS IS A GUIDE ONLY and based on a square oil on canvas - actual price will be the result of discussion and agreement by both parties)
