HOW TO PRICE YOUR

WATERCOLOR LANDSCAPE DOCUMENT

PaintingPrice for square inch x number of square inches.

This painting evokes an important location to the couple, but is relatively easy to paint. 

Example: 

22 x 30 (full sheet)=660 square inches

Number of square inches times $1.75/square inch=$1155

Price for Text Number of words x $1.75/word

Let's say you wish a Quaker Document. The text is relatively brief. I ran a hypothetical text and it was 237  words. You can find the number of words in your document easily by opening it in a  Word program. On the toolbar, go to "Tools". Drop down menu and select "Word Count"

Paper:  Full sheet is $12

 

Signature Lines

Up to 50...$30

Up to 250...$45

Document Board for full sheet $65

 

Example:

Let's say that your text is 237 word x $1.75 =$414.75

Watercolor ................................................................1155.00

Paper................................................................................12.00

Signature Lines (Let's say 175 lines).....................45.00

Document Board...........................................................65.00

Total for this project would be.......................... $1691.75

Let's say your project fits on 1/2 sheet. The price changes thus:

Watercolor 22 x 15=$577.50

Paper $6

Total for this document  on 1/2 sheet= ............$1108.25

LANDSCAPE IN A STRUCTURED BORDER

 

Include all of the elements above and inn addition:

     This piece is enclosed in an intricate border panel and the painting has to convey its meaning within those shapes. We added the detail of the night sky and full moon, which is accurate for the date and time of their wedding. 

This is a full Ketubah text in Hebrew and English. It's long.  The procedure is the same as above.

I'm estimating the text here at 760 words.  

760 x $1.75=$1330

Additionally, the text has to fit in a specific shape. That requires additional preliminary work.

Add 25% to the text charge. 1330 x .25= $332.50

Total text charge $1330 + 332.50=1662.50

Add a fee for creating the border. In this case, $200

Let's say that your text is 760 words x $1.75 ......1330.00

Fit to specific space, additional 25%..........................332.50

Watercolor ......................................................................1155.00

Create Border....................................................................200.00

Paper......................................................................................12.00

Signature Lines (5 lines, captioned)..............................35.00

Document Board..................................................................65.00

Total for this project would be.................................$3129.50
