Reviews:

I posted a job with 6 different references all with a similar vibe. Alexandra messaged to say she could do this for $750 for the clouds only - I didn’t want any animals or other details. We booked in fairly quickly and she was punctual and very friendly. She showed me one of the ref pictures I used (attached) to confirm what I wanted. As she started she was asking me how it was and if it needed more. I said great thinking she was getting the outline together. Not much changed and she was asking me what else it needed, this kind of made me uncomfortable because I’m not an artist and I have no idea what it needs to create the vision, hence hiring an artist. After realising she was finished (under 2 hours) I’m feeling awkward but thanked her and she left. The next day I messaged her apologising for my bad communication but I’ve reflected and I’m not happy with the project as it looks nothing like the references. Understandably she was confused as I had thanked her, said goodbye and paid. She asked me what I would like her to do where I asked her to come back and finish. She agreed that it doesn’t look like the reference but because I said okay and thanked her on the day that she’s satisfied with her work so I assume she won’t be returning as I haven’t had another response after 5 days.

Nicole was commissioned to create two Felted miniature Japanese Spitz Dogs using my dogs hair, as a gift for my mother. Almost a week after receiving the gift my mother is STILL raving about the accuracy of the dog, the facial expression, body shape (the ears, ruff, tail, tongue, eyes, round snout), just wonderful! Nicole was so communicative, prompt to reply, extremely well-priced priced, had the job completed earlier than the agreed deadline, and made sure I was kept up-to-date with progress and pictures. Nicole also went out of her way to meet me which was very generous. I would recommend Nicole to everyone. This is a fantastic idea if you have a pet you want to have something of when they pass, while they are living etc. Even Bear likes his replica so much we have to buy a special case to keep it safe haha! 10000 gold stars to you Nicole. 5 is not enough!

New Zealand Painters & Canvas Artists

Canvas painting is a popular form of art in New Zealand. The city is home to a thriving art scene, with many galleries and studios showcasing the work of local artists. Canvas painting is a versatile medium that allows artists to create a wide range of styles and subjects, from traditional landscapes and portraits to abstract and modern paintings.

The Book An Artist platform allows customers to hire canvas painters in New Zealand for custom canvas art. These can be created in various mediums such as oil, acrylic, watercolor, or digital art. View an artist's work and contact them to discuss a commission. Custom painting pricing can vary depending on the size, medium, and complexity of the piece.

Canvas painting is a vibrant and exciting part of the art scene in New Zealand, and offers both artists and art enthusiasts many opportunities to explore and appreciate this wall art.

Types of Popular New Zealand Canvas Prints and Wall Art

Some popular subjects for custom paintings in New Zealand include portrait art, these can be of people, a pet portrait, or even objects.

Landscape painting or nature paintings, this can include natural landscapes, such as mountains, forests, oceans (wave paintings), lakes and sunset paintings.

Still life paintings, inanimate objects such as flower art, fruits, and other objects arranged in a specific setting.

Fantasy art, this usually includes but isn't limited to child-friendly artwork. Cartoons, bunnies, unicorns, butterfly paintings or horse paintings can make great additions to a kid's bedroom.

Abstract paintings, the opposite of realism art, abstract art is a style of painting that does not depict a specific subject but rather focuses on color, shape, and form to create abstract art.

Canvas art styles

Artists and their styles have continuously changed throughout history. Classic painting turned to impressionist paintings and industrial art had its peak before even more styles came into the picture.

A game changer for the art community was between the 1930's to 1960's. Mid century modern art was a time of social and cultural change. Artists began to experiment with new forms and break away from class painting and industrial art. This art style was characterised by its simple line art, black and white art, geometric shapes and particularly bold colours.

Creating art is a lot more accessible now which is why there is so much indie art. Independent artists, sketch artists and doodle artists often work outside of the mainstream art world and may have a unique or unconventional approach to their art and sketches.

Canvas painting medium

Canvas paintings can be created using a variety of mediums, each with their own unique characteristics and techniques. The most popular mediums are oil paint and acrylic paint. Oil painting is known for its rich, vibrant colors and the ability to create a wide range of textures and effects. Acrylic paint can create a wide range of effects and can be thinned or thickened to create different textures. Acrylic paintings can also be varnished sooner than oil paintings.

Other medium options include watercolour art, pastel painting and gouache painting. All of which have differing application processes and drying time.

Custom wall art and paintings in New Zealand

New Zealand wall paintings can be created for a variety of settings, such as homes, offices, or commercial spaces. They can also be created as gifts for special occasions, such as birthdays, weddings, or anniversaries.

Ultimately, where you hang a canvas wall art depends on the size and style of the painting, as well as the room and the purpose of the space. For example, living room wall art should compliment your furniture or act as a statement piece.

When hanging framed art, it's important to consider the lighting in the room and to make sure the framed painting is at eye level to ensure the best viewing experience. It's also important to make sure the painting is securely hung and won't fall.
