Commission Information

By Kamanika Mohottige

How it works

Before commission Kamanika will discuss with you about your photographs. She will need clear, HD, close up photographs of head and shoulders of the subject. The clearer the image, the more detail she can capture.  But some times we will have to use multiple photographs.

This consultation is completely FREE. Once we agree on a photo, then the commission process starts.

We use the best archival-quality material for our artwork;  Faber Castell Graphite pencils on Strathmore Bristol Vellum Paper are the basis. This high-quality archival material will last for generations.  

As a self-taught artist, Kamanika had practised for thousands of hours over the years to improve her drawing skills in realism. Each drawing takes a minimum of 20 hours to capture all the intricate details.

No shortcuts. Each detail, each hair and all the smooth skin tone transformations are captured with meticulous attention.

Each commission is drawn with love and care and you will be regularly updated on the progress.

Commission Prices

Please see the graphite commission prices below. These are available in three sizes (9″ x 12″) (11″ x  14″) (12″ x  16″)

We don’t normally provide mounting, giving you the freedom to choose your own mounts and frames. But if required please inquire. Our local Framers will do this for you for an additional cost.

Upon completion posted via Royal Mail Recorded (in the UK). Each work will contain a certificate of authenticity.

It is common to have a 3-4 weeks waiting list for a portrait to be completed because each work involves many hours of detailed work. This is often longer leading to Christmas. So please book early to avoid disappointment.
