FS: Offering my original oil paintings

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
_______________________________________________________________________________ To view all available paintings, please click here: http://www.soopsee.com/profile/stephenjchow _______________________________________________________________________________ I painted most of these during the 10-week 2009 Autumn Intensive at Studio Escalier in Argenton-Chateau, France, and will be returning there for their Summer Intensive on May 20th to create, hopefully, bigger and better work. All sales directly fund these tuition costs. You can contact me by PM or at schow@brandeis.edu Feel free to ask questions, request more photos, or even video footage of what a painting looks like up close (I upload them to vimeo). Thanks for looking! Stephen Video footage of a few of these paintings > http://www.vimeo.com/user3129480 (This particular landscape sold but I can make similar ones for you) Some recent paintings. I haven't determined prices for some of these yet but if you're interested in one just let me know. All of the high resolution close ups of these paintings are on my flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/stephenjchow/ (This book painting recently sold, but I can certainly paint a similar one if you would like)

How much would you charge for custom paintings?

Hi intent, The price depends on the complexity of the subject and to a lesser extent the size of the canvas. Just let me know what you are looking for and I will give you a quote. A deadline would be helpful as well Thanks for your interest, Stephen

I believe that B&S rules are that you have to post prices. I may be interested

Hello JohnGalt, Figures and portraits based on your supplied photographs would be in the $300-$500 range, anything else (still lives, landscapes, fantasy/sci-fi, etc.) about $200-$300. I usually work at 12 x 16" or smaller so larger canvas sizes may cost more for materials. Stephen

Old cast painting with a new frame, and a recent monochromatic study after Johann Liss: Also, prepared this painting from above for a custom frame. It's currently at the frameshop:

geoffmartin17 - Thanks! I'm considering leaving it like this--I was intending to do a full-color layer on top after it dries.

Leave it like this! This is awesome. Its very Raphael.

I may be interested potentially.

a) How much artistic direction are you willing to deal with / how much creative license do you insist on maintaining?

b) Do you have any examples of small figures as opposed to portraits?

SpooPoker - Thank you, I'll be leaving it as it is MetroStyles - It really depends on the project I am asked to do. My strong suits are painting directly from life and copying from paintings/photos. Let me know what you have in mind and we can discuss the details. I dug up some other small figures here: (Sold) (This one is after William Etty) (This one is after Pierre-Victor Galland, painted directly on wood)

I was thinking something with figures roughly this size compared to the overall composition:



With roughly this amount of facial detail:



With this general vibe:



It's a really specific vision I have, but alas I cannot paint.

The overall aesthetic you are looking for reminds me of the multi-figure paintings by Lawrence Alma-Tadema or Waterhouse. As I said above, I would be much more comfortable reproducing a painting that already has all of these elements, than trying to make it up on my own. I'll see what I can find that would work This was the first painting that came to mind, by Alma-Tadema: John Singer Sargent, "El Jaleo"
