Commission Painting Details
Custom Pastel Paintings
Before I start any painting we have our personal conversations about your thoughts of what your subject matter will be along with other desires you have for your painting. Then I start creating a detailed pencil sketch to scale of your ideas. This sketch really shows all the details and size of your painting then we can critique and make any changes if necessary. I pride myself in the pencil sketch to scale for this sketch is the blueprint for your commissioned painting.
The technique that I use to build the layers of pastel pigment and detail for each painting are accomplished by painting in the morning hours, afternoon, evening hours, on sunny and cloudy days so that the lighting is virtually built into the painting. The painting will look great in many different lighting situations so no direct overhead lighting will be necessary. The time I need to create for smaller paintings is three months and up to six months or more for larger paintings.
The commission includes the all conversations, emails, critiques, the sketch, the painting and framing. If I have to travel there may be travel expenses that would be additional. Since I cannot quote your portrait usually a small pet portrait with frame runs about $5000 and up and takes about three months to complete.
