    Not the first time that I have had this sort of request, but in the past I've never managed to agree a fee for usage.

    So has anyone else had requests like this and managed to agree terms with the artist?

    I need to go back and ask for exact use, etc., as a one of painting would be significantly different from using to produce a set of cards for instance. Hard to know even where to start with this kind of thing.

    Thanks in Advance for any useful information
    Cheryl

    I appreciate that you may be looking at it from a different, possibly commercial perspective.

    I know someone who has a friend who is a botanical illustrator and has provided images of butterflies / moths / flowers as a reference for her.

    She has been quite happy to just receive a copy of the book, postcard, calendar etc. in which the illustration has been used. Additionally there has been a full credit, something along the lines :" I would like to thank xyz for allowing me to use her image of abc as a reference "

    Not sure how this statement could be included on painting though but something similar with your contact details may be worth considering.

    How well-known is the painter Cheryl?

    If globally recognised - it's an arm and a leg. Wink

    If its a local, well-known painter then, as JJ suggests, a signed copy and a full credit acknowledgment should suffice I would have thought. (There could always be more work though it..??)

    The artist mentioned payment in the initial contact. I will email them back for more details tomorrow.
