the Portrait Process
Step 1 – Scope Discussion
Discuss your budget and vision ie… formal, informal, mood, setting, clothing, size, number of people etc.
Step 2 – Professional Photography Session
Photo session is included in portrait price, however, if deposit to begin painting has not yet been received, a $500 photography session fee ( in advance) is required for photo session and online gallery to review your images.
If it is impossible for us to do a professional photography session, we’ll consider working from your high quality photos.
Sittings are welcomed if the portrait subject desires to do so.
Step 3 – Finalize Portrait Details
After your online gallery is posted, we will discuss your images and details of the portrait to be painted. After details have been agreed upon, and your 50% painting deposit has been made, work on the painting will begin.
Price ($2,500 to $50,000) based on number of people, size, complexity, style, travel, framing, shipping etc…. Contact Us to discuss price details.
Step 4 – Completion & Delivery
Upon completion of the painting (usually 2 weeks to 3 months depending on complexity), the balance is due in full prior to shipping or upon delivery. Your portrait can be shipped, delivered, or picked up at our studio.
