Most artists will at some time be commissioned to do a piece of work, a particular view, a specific size, a portrait of a loved-one or something to commemorate an event. The kind of artist or craftsperson that you are will determine both how likely this is to happen and also how you might need to approach this situation. Peter is a portrait painter, most of his work is commissioned and he has a very clear process of dealing with these transactions. Laura is a landscape printmaker working in editions and most of her work is bought off the wall, but has done a few commissions of particular places... This episode of Ask an Artist explores the benefits and pitfalls you need to consider in tackling commissions.
