|Commissioning a portrait|
couldn't be easier!
After an initial meeting to determine basic portrait design, canvas size, pose, type of clothing, setting and lighting, I will schedule a photo session. At this time, I will take a variety of poses including some "close-up" photographs and color notes which will aid in the creation of the portrait.
A 40% deposit is required at the photo session.
After we have agreed on a pose and a "concept," I will begin work. The process for completing a portrait will take anywhere from 3-8 months. When it is nearing completion, I will show it to you either at my studio, or via digital imaging for final approval. Any touch-ups can be made at this time.
The painting will be delivered when dry, unframed. At this point I will schedule a time for final varnishing if needed (6 months to 1 year from completion). I will also be happy to consult with you on framing.
