What if I want to change my mind about the painting?
Once River & Colour begins a painting, we’re unable to accommodate a change of mind and/or additional change requests. Please make sure you have clearly discussed exactly what you want before we begin painting. For more info please visit our T&Cs.

What sizes do you sell?
It varies depending on the individual artwork, so we recommend you check individual pieces for the available sizes. You can also check out our size guide here.

Why do your prints seem expensive?
At River & Colour we only use the finest quality materials so that all our artworks will last a lifetime. All our giclée prints are made using a high resolution inkjet printer, pigmented ink and premium Hahnemuhle 308gsm matte cotton paper to create a museum quality reproduction of the original artwork. This is why the production costs of our giclée prints are so high.
