A ‘Picture My Ride’ classic car painting is the perfect gift for the car enthusiast in your life. Working from photo reference, I can create an oil painting or drawing of classic or new cars, trucks, or motorcycles. Contact me to learn more.
The price for a painting starts at $400 for an 11×14 painting. Due to the intricate or custom detail on cars, trucks, and motorcycles, all prices are quoted on a per painting basis. The price will depend on the size of the painting, the number of cars, if people are included, and detail of the background involved.
All paintings are hand-painted in oil on a gesso board or canvas. Framing is also available – just ask! The finished painting can be made into prints, t-shirts, or just about anything for an additional cost.
I work exclusively from photos. If you are located near the Hamilton/Princeton area, I can arrange to take photos of your car. Digital photos you provide should be good quality resolution. You can send multiple photos, and I will work with you to determine the best photo to use for a painting. You can send digital photos by email or printed photos by regular mail. Most file formats work.
Please let me know if the painting is needed for a special event (birthday, anniversary, etc.) when placing your order.
A 50% deposit is required before I can start the painting. When you are ready to have a portrait painted, you will be sent a contract, which will need to be signed and returned to Hummingbird Arts Studio with the deposit. If you are paying by credit card, the contract can be mailed back separately.
If the portrait is canceled before the initial sketch is completed, 25% of the deposit will be refunded. The deposit is nonrefundable after the sketch is completed.
Once I receive the deposit, you will receive a sketch via email or through a link on my website. After you have approved the sketch (for size and composition), I will start the painting process, which will take 2 to 4 weeks. The remaining balance is due on completion of the painting.
