When will I receive my order?
Acrylic paintings take between 2 and six weeks to complete before they are ready for shipping. The paint needs a sufficient time to fully dry before being finished with varnish and this will depend on the thickness of the paint used. The varnish then needs up to two weeks before being shipped, again dependant on factors like ambient temperature, number of layers required. If collecting, this timeframe will be less.
This time scale is in addition to any waiting list I may have for artworks.
Portraits generally take no more than a week to complete and are ready to ship immediately. There is often a waiting list for my portraits which you will be advised of at the point of order.
