procedures for commissioning a portrait:
If a photo shoot is not a possibility, then please, read this page and then go to portraits from your photo.
You will be required to:
1/ Discuss the work requested, including format, medium, size, mood, number of subjects and any other features to be added. On agreement of these details, a 50% downpayment is due, (see Price List page).
2/ Be available for a photo session wearing a colour that suits you and clothes you feel comfortable in. (No bright, large patterns.)
3/ Be available to review photos with me, usually at the end of the photo session.
4/ Preview the finished painting for last minute tweaks, if necessary. This can be done by email.
5/ Complete payment of balance on completion of painting.
6/ Collect painting, or provide shipping instructions (shipping is not included).
I will be available for:
1/ Initial discussion and photo session.
2/ Review of photo material session.
3/ Email images of work when almost finished.
4/ Presentation of completed painting.
5/ Advice on framing if required*
Once I have the material to work from, the painting will take approximately three weeks to complete. If you are planning for a special occasion, please note that framing usually takes an additional two weeks.
All the art materials I use are professional archival quality.
Assistance in choosing framing is available. Cost of framing and/or shipping is the responsibility of the client.
I can arrange both of these at an additional cost - call or email me to discuss.
