Terms of business
Payment to be made in three stages - at the acceptance of the commission - at the middle stage when painting has reached a certain development - final payment on acceptance of the painting as agreed with or without a frame.
If a frame is required it will be extra in the price range of £60 depending upon size.
The painting remains the property of the artist until final payment has been made.
I regret that stage fees cannot be returned.
Should for whatever reason a commission be cancelled by the client between stage two and stage three then payment in full is required.
Should the commission be broken by the artist between stage two and three and the stage two payment has been made 50% will be refunded to the client
Please make payments to D. Brackston.
