The source of information for my portraits comes from photographs. This procedure eliminates the inconvenience and expense related to repeated sittings.
I can work from a photograph that is special to you; the client, (given that the quality of light is appropriate) or I can take the photographs myself indoors or in a nearby outdoor location with an additional fee of $50 per hour. I will help you with the selection of photographs to be used for the portrait.
For oil or pastel portraits, photographs need to be in color. For pencil portraits the photographs can be either in color or black and white.
Selection of Size and Medium
After the resource selection has been made, you’ll determine the medium and the size of the final product and therefore the price.
A 40% deposit is required at the time the portrait is commissioned. The agreed upon deposit is non-refundable if you decide to cancel after the agreement contract has been signed.
The balance is payable after the completed portrait has been approved by you.
I would like for you to participate in at least one review of the portrait as it approaches completion. This review(s) will give me the opportunity to make adjustments to the likeness of the subject to your satisfaction.
Approval and Delivery
Delivery of the portrait can be expected within ninety days of photo selection and after portrait has been approved.
I’ll carry out any reasonable requested alterations of the finished portrait that are deemed consistent with my conception and established style. No additional charge is made for minor alterations.
