Your custom portrait paintings, like the ones you see on this page begin with a free personal consultation. We talk about your ideas and concept of your commissioned painting such as the subject matter, size, colors, the location the painting will hang. Plan for a minimum of two-three sessions together with the subject for about 45 minutes each if the subject is available. I will create a detailed pencil sketch to scale of your painting before painting. This is very exciting for clients and puts them at ease knowing I’ve captured their subject. Commissioned portraits take anywhere from 3 to 8 months to complete.
The commission paintings includes; all conversations, emails, critiques, the painting, and framing. If traveling is involved, travel and shipping expenses will be additional. Upon the quote agreement, a comfortable deposit will be requested.
