How to Commission an Original Pop Realism Painting by Brandy Saturley – The Voice of Canadian Pop Art

Brandy Saturley has painted numerous commissioned original paintings in her unique pop realism aesthetic for Canadian art collectors, worldwide. Each commissioned painting is conceived through a collaborative process with the client. Saturley has journeyed across Canada and the United States; on foot, by boat, by plane, subway, cab and even limousine. Whatever is required to capture the places and subjects required to tell the story on canvas.  A commissioned painting is a timeless and personalized gift unlike any other you could ever give, or receive. The final result is an original work of art combing your vision with the artist’s unique language and style.

The Process for Commissioning an Original Pop Realism painting with Brandy Saturley

COMMISSION PROCESS: After initial discussion with the client over the phone, by video conference, or in person; Saturley compiles notes and begins with creating three sketches either from client supplied photos, by artist research, or through original photography by the artist at your location, followed by a small watercolour study. These studies are then photographed and submitted to the client for approval, before commencing work on the original commissioned painting.

FEES: Current pricing for an original commissioned work painted by Brandy Saturley is the same as for existing original original pop realism paintings, which are priced by size.

ADDITIONAL FEES: if the original custom painting you wish to have created requires the artist to fly to location(s) to gather photography reference or meet in person, this would be an additional cost, paid by the client.

DEPOSIT UPON BEGINNING WORK: A 50% deposit is required upon agreement and commencement of study sketches and initial watercolour study. Balance due upon shipping final work. Commissions can take between one month, to one year depending on the complexity and size of the work. A commissioned painting is a lovingly crafted original creation and a collaboration between you and the artist, therefore it requires time and patience ensuring a one-of-a-kind, beautifully finished piece that will hold up and be enjoyed for generations.

Art Collector Homes Part 2; Art in Oak Bay

Earlier this year I wrote a blog post about art collector homes on Canada’s west coast, Vancouver Island. I’m not sure if it is the hot real estate market in Victoria BC, or my artwork on the walls, but something is happening here in BC and I am pleased to have my work prominently on display in these stunning homes. Earlier this year one of my collectors put their Cordova Bay dream home on the market, minus the artwork, though the bidders were hoping to have the paintings included in the sale. This month another collector, this time in Oak Bay has their stunning custom home on the market, a beautiful three-storey stunner, with an Olympic Mountain view.

Last summer I installed a custom painted, commissioned work of art on their wall with a view. I take on very few commissions as it takes time away from my core work as a professional artist, however in this case I was happy to oblige as the scale of the work and the idea sounded like a fun detour for a month. These commissioned paintings offer me a chance to get inside someone else’s head for a while and allow me to mentally stretch as an artist. In some cases they challenge me in new subject material and open me up to expressing views outside of my core work on canvas. It is a collaborative experience where the client is expressing their creativity through me, the artist. After all, we are all creative, but we are not all artists, or painters. As an artist I have the patience to commit myself to a month long process of creating something custom tailored to suit the client’s creative aspirations and vision. I bring my expertise with colour, form, composition and style, creating the perfect painting for the couple who will forever own the piece and pass it down to the next generation of art lovers.

Breathtaking views of the Salish Sea from this incredible custom residence situated in Victoria’s oldest and most sought after address, on King George Terrace in Oak Bay. Built in 1999 to exacting standards, this home features impressive views, amazing sunsets and the ocean activity in the channel.

The final painting was designed to echo the view out the main window, with sunset colours and sailboats, as you watch them sail by all year round, and by the hundreds during Swiftsure yacht race. It is a view where you can enjoy a glass of champagne, your favorite wine or in this case a martini with raspberries.
