  • Prices and Payments

  • Our paintings vary in cost depending on the size and the number of subjects in the painting.

    The most delicate part of each painting is capturing the faces of each subject. These detailed features take time and skill to execute. For this reason, we need to know the number of subjects in the painting, so we can determine the complexity of the painting, and price it accordingly.

    For more information about pricing, visit our price page .

  • You will be asked to pay a 10% downpayment while placing your order. The remaining balance of 90% will be charged only after you approve the final draft of your painting.

  • We offer 4 payment plans (installments). First is Affirm, which is available for purchases starting at $150 (only for US customers). You can choose it as a source of your payment at the checkout. The procedure is quite simple: The payments are split into 4 interest-free installments paid bi-weekly. For more information regarding Affirm, you can follow the link: https://www.affirm.com/how-it-works A similar option would be Pay in 4 (only for US customers), which offers splitting the amount into 4 interest-free payments via PayPal. This installment plan is for purchases between $30-$600 and only the first payment is covered upfront, just like Zip. You can read more about Pay in 4 here: https://www.paypal.com/us/for-you/pay-in-4. We also offer PayPal Credit (only for US customers) which is available for any payment above $99 and is interest-free if paid in full within 6 months. When your painting is finished and confirmed, you will be asked to cover the remaining balance. Before doing so, however, you should apply for PayPal Credit by answering a few quick questions. If your application gets approved, you can choose PayPal Credit as the payment source on our checkout page and complete the final balance in installments. You can acquire additional information and apply for the credit line here: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit. Another option we offer is Klarna (only for US & UK customers). Klarna offers 3 options to split the amount. First would be 4 bi-weekly, interest free, payments, similar to Zip. They also offer an option to finance your purchase and pay over 6-36 months. And lastly, they also offer a buy now, pay later option, which gives you the ability to finalize the purchase and pay 30 days later. For more information regarding Klarna, you can follow the link: https://www.klarna.com/us/what-is-klarna/. By the way, you won't have to finish paying off the installment, in order to have the painting shipped!

  • You can apply your coupon code on the shopping cart page while placing your order.

  • No worries, we've got you covered! If your photo is too "heavy" or is of a format that our website doesn't accept, you can continue placing your order and send it as an attachment directly to team@paintyourlife.com. Our team will upload the photo to your order for you.

  • We want to ensure that you receive the highest-quality painting possible. For faces, our artists need at least 3x3 inches on the canvas/paper to achieve the best level of detail you'll be happy with. An artwork with a canvas/paper smaller than 8x10 inches will give no room to our artists to display clear facial details or background elements.

  • Yes, you can! And at no extra cost to you ;) When placing your order, you’ll have the opportunity to let us know about any changes you wish to have made to your photo including the background.

  • You are welcome to change or request a specific artist BEFORE the painting process has begun. However, once your painting has begun, it is not possible to change to a new artist.

  • Great question! This is above all, a matter of personal taste. To help you decide, we suggest that you browse our oil, charcoal,pastel, watercolor, pencil and acrylic galleries, and get a feel for what you like best. Our most popular medium is oil, so if you are unsure what to choose, it's a safe bet :)

    Oil
    Charcoal
    Black Pencil
    Color Pencil
    Watercolor
    Pastel
    Acrylic
    Characteristics
    Oil is the most popular medium and is the most vivid reflection of photos. All styles and techniques are available to the artist who paints in oil, where most other mediums are limited in their stylistic ranges. An oil painting is a natural heirloom you will be proud to have in the family for generations.

    Material & Framing: Oil is painted on canvas and doesn't require a protective glass.

    Works best for: Whatever photo you choose, Oil will be a good fit. If you are unsure what medium to choose, Oil will be a safe choice.
    Characteristics
    Artistic simpleness with black and white. While charcoals grant the lively drama of any black-and-white medium, they are usually far more high-contrast than pencil drawings. In fact, contrast is the very nature of charcoals. The darker blacks obtainable from charcoals give a certain drama that would be more subtle in other mediums. If you love black and white pictures, and seek to make a powerful statement, consider charcoals as your medium.

    Material & Framing: Painted on paper and requires a protective glass when framed.

    Works best for: If your photo is an outdoor / landscape picture, or if you'd like the background to be painted in detail, consider other mediums. As you can see here those beautiful portraits are focused on the subject of the painting, with hardly any background painted. Also, if you are short in time, Charcoal / Pencil are good choices since they don't require several layers and don't need to dry and therefore allow a faster turnaround
    Characteristics
    Pencils can go from very light to very deep in hue and depth. The fine lines of a sharpened pencil are nearly impossible to duplicate with a brush, and completely unavailable for pastels or charcoal. Shading with pencils is one of the nicest characteristics this medium provides.

    Material & Framing: Painted on paper and requires a protective glass when framed.

    Works best for: Pencil portraits are usually ordered in small sizes, and are a perfect fit for a fairly small room / wall.
    Characteristics
    Watercolor is a very distinctive kind of painting medium. The transparent watercolor distinguishes your painting from all other mediums. The magic of color mixed with water gives the painting a soft, rustic, antique feeling.

    Material & Framing: Painted on paper and requires a protective glass when framed.

    Works best for: Watercolor works very well for houses and outdoor / landscape.
    Characteristics
    Pastel is a very dry medium, and therefore may appear somewhat flatter than other mediums. Nevertheless, it possesses its own undeniable charm.

    Material & Framing: Painted on paper and requires a protective glass when framed.

    Works best for: Choose pastel for making portraits of both people and pets, because the results are high in texture and visual interest.
    Characteristics
    Before you decide between oil and acrylic mediums, you should know that they often appear identical. The main advantages of choosing acrylics over oils are that they can sometimes appear somewhat more saturated in color. Acrylic is more vibrant than oil, therefore, some will prefer Acrylic as the medium for a landscape painting.

    Material & Framing: Acrylic is painted on canvas and doesn't require a protective glass.

    Works best for: Like oils, acrylics work well for just about any photo.

The price of Express Shipping varies from $19 - $69 (depending on the choice of framing and size of the painting). For the exact turnaround, please check here.

  • Modification of artwork can take anywhere between 1 to 3 days depending on the complexity of your request(s).

  • Unfortunately, due to the size of our products we are not able to ship artwork to APO, FPO, or PO Boxes.

  • Yes, we do! We ship to any destination, worldwide.

  • The safety of your artwork is super important to us! Our shipping team will make sure that your order is safely wrapped in multiple protective layers, hard-shelled in a protective shipping box, and marked “fragile.”

  • Prices and Payments

  • Our paintings vary in cost depending on the size and the number of subjects in the painting.

    The most delicate part of each painting is capturing the faces of each subject. These detailed features take time and skill to execute. For this reason, we need to know the number of subjects in the painting, so we can determine the complexity of the painting, and price it accordingly.

    For more information about pricing, visit our price page .

  • You will be asked to pay a 10% downpayment while placing your order. The remaining balance of 90% will be charged only after you approve the final draft of your painting.

  • We offer 4 payment plans (installments). First is Affirm, which is available for purchases starting at $150 (only for US customers). You can choose it as a source of your payment at the checkout. The procedure is quite simple: The payments are split into 4 interest-free installments paid bi-weekly. For more information regarding Affirm, you can follow the link: https://www.affirm.com/how-it-works A similar option would be Pay in 4 (only for US customers), which offers splitting the amount into 4 interest-free payments via PayPal. This installment plan is for purchases between $30-$600 and only the first payment is covered upfront, just like Zip. You can read more about Pay in 4 here: https://www.paypal.com/us/for-you/pay-in-4. We also offer PayPal Credit (only for US customers) which is available for any payment above $99 and is interest-free if paid in full within 6 months. When your painting is finished and confirmed, you will be asked to cover the remaining balance. Before doing so, however, you should apply for PayPal Credit by answering a few quick questions. If your application gets approved, you can choose PayPal Credit as the payment source on our checkout page and complete the final balance in installments. You can acquire additional information and apply for the credit line here: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit. Another option we offer is Klarna (only for US & UK customers). Klarna offers 3 options to split the amount. First would be 4 bi-weekly, interest free, payments, similar to Zip. They also offer an option to finance your purchase and pay over 6-36 months. And lastly, they also offer a buy now, pay later option, which gives you the ability to finalize the purchase and pay 30 days later. For more information regarding Klarna, you can follow the link: https://www.klarna.com/us/what-is-klarna/. By the way, you won't have to finish paying off the installment, in order to have the painting shipped!

  • You can apply your coupon code on the shopping cart page while placing your order.

  • No worries, we've got you covered! If your photo is too "heavy" or is of a format that our website doesn't accept, you can continue placing your order and send it as an attachment directly to team@paintyourlife.com. Our team will upload the photo to your order for you.

  • We want to ensure that you receive the highest-quality painting possible. For faces, our artists need at least 3x3 inches on the canvas/paper to achieve the best level of detail you'll be happy with. An artwork with a canvas/paper smaller than 8x10 inches will give no room to our artists to display clear facial details or background elements.

  • Yes, you can! And at no extra cost to you ;) When placing your order, you’ll have the opportunity to let us know about any changes you wish to have made to your photo including the background.

  • You are welcome to change or request a specific artist BEFORE the painting process has begun. However, once your painting has begun, it is not possible to change to a new artist.

  • Great question! This is above all, a matter of personal taste. To help you decide, we suggest that you browse our oil, charcoal,pastel, watercolor, pencil and acrylic galleries, and get a feel for what you like best. Our most popular medium is oil, so if you are unsure what to choose, it's a safe bet :)

    Oil
    Charcoal
    Black Pencil
    Color Pencil
    Watercolor
    Pastel
    Acrylic
    Characteristics
    Oil is the most popular medium and is the most vivid reflection of photos. All styles and techniques are available to the artist who paints in oil, where most other mediums are limited in their stylistic ranges. An oil painting is a natural heirloom you will be proud to have in the family for generations.

    Material & Framing: Oil is painted on canvas and doesn't require a protective glass.

    Works best for: Whatever photo you choose, Oil will be a good fit. If you are unsure what medium to choose, Oil will be a safe choice.
    Characteristics
    Artistic simpleness with black and white. While charcoals grant the lively drama of any black-and-white medium, they are usually far more high-contrast than pencil drawings. In fact, contrast is the very nature of charcoals. The darker blacks obtainable from charcoals give a certain drama that would be more subtle in other mediums. If you love black and white pictures, and seek to make a powerful statement, consider charcoals as your medium.

    Material & Framing: Painted on paper and requires a protective glass when framed.

    Works best for: If your photo is an outdoor / landscape picture, or if you'd like the background to be painted in detail, consider other mediums. As you can see here those beautiful portraits are focused on the subject of the painting, with hardly any background painted. Also, if you are short in time, Charcoal / Pencil are good choices since they don't require several layers and don't need to dry and therefore allow a faster turnaround
    Characteristics
    Pencils can go from very light to very deep in hue and depth. The fine lines of a sharpened pencil are nearly impossible to duplicate with a brush, and completely unavailable for pastels or charcoal. Shading with pencils is one of the nicest characteristics this medium provides.

    Material & Framing: Painted on paper and requires a protective glass when framed.

    Works best for: Pencil portraits are usually ordered in small sizes, and are a perfect fit for a fairly small room / wall.
    Characteristics
    Watercolor is a very distinctive kind of painting medium. The transparent watercolor distinguishes your painting from all other mediums. The magic of color mixed with water gives the painting a soft, rustic, antique feeling.

    Material & Framing: Painted on paper and requires a protective glass when framed.

    Works best for: Watercolor works very well for houses and outdoor / landscape.
    Characteristics
    Pastel is a very dry medium, and therefore may appear somewhat flatter than other mediums. Nevertheless, it possesses its own undeniable charm.

    Material & Framing: Painted on paper and requires a protective glass when framed.

    Works best for: Choose pastel for making portraits of both people and pets, because the results are high in texture and visual interest.
    Characteristics
    Before you decide between oil and acrylic mediums, you should know that they often appear identical. The main advantages of choosing acrylics over oils are that they can sometimes appear somewhat more saturated in color. Acrylic is more vibrant than oil, therefore, some will prefer Acrylic as the medium for a landscape painting.

    Material & Framing: Acrylic is painted on canvas and doesn't require a protective glass.

    Works best for: Like oils, acrylics work well for just about any photo.
