A5 bust

Interested in a custom painting? Great!

Currently I mainly do pet portrait commissions. The medium I use for commissions is watercolour, and I paint on 300 gsm Arches Coldpressed paper.

I specialise in furry pets (dogs, cats, bunnies etc.), but I can also paint other animals if commissioned. Ask for a quote, since there might be some adjustments to pricing because of time and/or difficulty.

I might stream the painting process of commissioned pieces – so if you want to commission a gift, tell me or make sure the recipient isn’t a regular at my art streams.

N.B. If you want to commission a gift, please do so in good time, and do tell me when you commission me that it is intended as a present. I need a clear deadline so there will be time to paint, receive payment, package and ship the painting. Thank you!

A4 fullbody


Pricing depends mainly on the size of the painting, and for now I will only do paintings up to size A4 (297 x 210 mm). Base prices are shown in Table 1. The reason fullbody paintings are only available as A4 is simply that A5 papers are too small for that.

In addition to size, the prices take into account the amount of time they take me to finish.

How to commission me

Have you already decided? You can commission me via email at contact[at]silwetanja.com, or my contact form.

Upon commissioning, you will be required to pay half in advance, and I will only start after the payment has been received. When the painting is done, I will send a watermarked photo for you to review, and when you have accepted it, I will expect the rest of the payment. I will send the painting, when it is paid in full.

Please note that all abovementioned prices are for pet portraits specifically – if you want something else, please ask for a quote.
