Commission Process

 

INITIAL PREPARATION
Prior to the start of the portrait the artist discusses details of the portrait such as size, mood, clothing, and any objects to be included in the portrait. She then travels to your location for the initial preparation. This takes about 2 to 2 ½ hours. During this time, the artist takes photographic references. It is also possible to use existing photographs if available.

BACK IN THE STUDIO
The artist reviews the photographic reference material and makes several sketches, which are sent to the client for further discussion and approval.

Once the look of the portrait is chosen, the artist proceeds with the painting. Stretched linen over a wooden support is prepared, and only professional quality materials are used. At this time a 25% deposit is due. When it is 75-80% completed, the artist sends a photo or digital image of the progress.

COMPLETION OF THE PORTRAIT
When the artist feels the portrait is complete, she will again send a photo or digital image for final approval. The client has the opportunity to request any final changes. When full approval is given, the final payment is due on delivery.

APPROXIMATE DELIVERY TIME
Delivery in approximately 2-3 months.
