Terms and conditions for purchases from Heather Maunders

Original Paintings:
Original watercolour paintings are worked mainly on acid free, 100% cotton rag, watercolour paper (Arches or similar quality) and are available to buy where indicated in the galleries. They will be sent to you unmounted unless specified otherwise by email or telephone. If you would like any further information before purchasing an original painting please email or telephone Heather using contact to discuss details.

Commissions for paintings are welcomed - please get in touch to discuss your requirements, with no obligation. Heather can work from your photographs, eg a pet or source reference material for the painting. She will paint to any size, and once your preferences are determined Heather will be able to give you a quote for the finished work or offer advice based on your ideas and budget. A 25% non-returnable deposit is required upon agreement of a commission contract.

Print Specifications:
Giclee prints (500) are available for most artwork. The print dimensions will be the same as the original painting and may be purchased either unmounted or or if requested, single mounted with backing board and wrapped in cellophane. Unless stated giclee prints are printed on to archival grade paper, buffered to combat acid attack, which may occur if prints are exposed to air pollutants. Prints are produced using archival quality pigment inks and tests have shown that the colours will last 70 - 80 years.
