Portrait commissions are accomplished through a combination of
life sittings and photographs. The first session is a collaborative
effort with the client and serves to help her to understand the
environment in which her subject is most comfortable or appears
to best advantage. The decision is made as to indoor or outdoor
setting, surroundings, and wardrobe. At that time a series of photographs
are taken and an initial color study done. Most of the painting
is completed in the studio, with one or two last sittings scheduled
for final adjustments. Fees are due half at signing of contract,
another quarter when pose is decided and initial drawing is completed
on canvass, and the remainder on completion.
NOT INCLUDED IN PRICE: Framing, shipping/crating, out of town travel/living
expenses and sales tax if required.
