  • Artist’s Description:

    This year, spring came into its own slowly. Therefore, when the first yellow crocuses appeared in the city park, the joy of meeting them was immerse as in childhood. And then, a few days later, these purple crocuses appeared. I just could not paint them. The perfection of their lines and forms required an expressive correspondence. I took some photos to capture my impression and, already in the studio, got down to work. Almost immediately, it became clear to me that they should not be painted in a bouquet, but somehow differently. I began to draw them in my sketch book and found a stylistic solution that, in my opinion, corresponds to the feeling that I want to convey. The square canvas format was consistent with the idea. I refused any additional details, removed everything superfluous that could distract from the flowers: the background, surroundings, shadows. I leave to paint only the shape, rhythm and flower’s color. In some places on the surface of the canvas there were traces of a charcoal pencil, which introduce some “imperfection” necessary in art, emphasising and reinforcing the feeling of the perfection of nature.

      Commissioning art is a fun and unique experience. No matter if you are a first-time art buyer or a seasoned collector, XPallery is here to make the process easy and enjoyable. The following five FAQs will give you an overview of the process. If you have an idea for a special artwork, send us an email at info@xpgallery.com and we can discuss the next steps.

      How much will it cost to commission an artwork?

      Commissioned pieces are priced based on the size, medium, and complexity of the piece, and the artist's sales history. Commissioned artworks will be more than comparable pieces in the artist's portfolio [in terms of size and medium]. This is due to the fact that the artist must spend time to consult with you about the project, create any necessary preliminary sketches, and take time away from their normal art practice to create your commission.

      Do I pay for commissioned artwork before or after the piece is complete? May I return a piece I've commissioned?

      Before the artist begins working on your commission, we take a 50% non-refundable deposit. This assures that the artist will be paid for their time and materials. Once the piece is complete, we will send you a high resolution image of the work. If you accept it, we will charge your credit card the remaining 50% and ship the piece to you. If for some reason you are not entirely satisfied when you see the image, we can work with the artist to make small changes. There are no returns once you take possession of the art.

      How long does it take to commission an artwork?

      The time will vary depending on the size, medium, and complexity of the piece, and the artist's schedule, but typically commissions take ten to twelve weeks to complete.
