How to Have a Painting Re-created
Posted on April 14 2016
I’ve received some questions recently about what's involved in the process of having a painting re-created (based off of one that’s already been sold). Since all of my sold items show up as not being available anymore on my website, some of you have asked if it’s still possible to have similar pieces made.
Yes, it is!
It’s actually a pretty simple process, but it’s definitely good to go over things beforehand to make sure everyone knows how it works!
Here are the steps that are involved…
Make Initial Contact
Get in touch with me and let me know what painting you’d like re-created. There are two possible ways you can do this:
Option 1: Contact me through my website’s contact form and let me know which painting you are interested in.
Option 2: Make a purchase of a previously sold painting from within my Etsy shop. On Etsy, I have all of my sold paintings listed as “Made-to-Order”, so you can buy a re-make of any one of them right then and there, and then have it automatically re-created and shipped to you, without having to send any further info (unless you want any changes, as explained below).
Specify any Modifications
Let me know if you want any part of the painting to be made differently than what’s in the original piece, such as the size, shape or colours.
Give Final Approval
When the painting is finished, I’ll send you a picture of it to make sure you’re happy with how it looks. Once you give the OK, I’ll send it off!
Here's an Example:
Of course, there’s no way of making an entirely new painting look exactly the same as the original, but I always try to come close. Here’s an example of one that I recreated for a customer in the United States.
She purchased the painting “Inferno” through my Etsy store, as a “made-to-order” piece.
Here’s an image of the original painting:
And here’s the one I re-created for her:
As you can see, there are some differences between the original and the re-created piece, but overall, the two are very similar.
In the end, she was extremely happy with the final result!
