How will the portrait commission will work:
First we will have a conversation about what you would like - who will be painted; is it for a special occasion; will it be a relatively traditional portrait or more contemporary. Perhaps you have something specific in mind. You will tell me a little more about the sitter/s, or yourself if I am painting you, as that really helps inform my painting.
Next, we will need to decide on the reference photos (as, with Covid-19, I will not be able to paint from life or take the photos myself.) For more than one sitter, they will have to be photographed together, rather than trying to work from separate photos. Once we have agreed on the image, I will give you an official quote, including the cost of shipping, if that is required. There will be a 30% deposit to pay to cover materials and time.
Once I start the painting, I will keep you informed and, if you want to have visual updates, share these with you. Some clients prefer to wait for the finished painting.
Once the painting is done, you will have to allow between 4 days to 2 weeks for the painting to be touch dry for delivery or shipping.
