I work best from photos which avoids lengthy sittings that portraiture can sometimes entail. Pet portraits and houses are also a possibility. Even your favourite garden rose can be immortalized in a tasteful composition that you can proudly hang in your home. Photos can be sent via email but must be clear enough to be able to observe details. Together we will select several desirable photos of the subject or subjects in question and go over details, such as background, clothing or posture. From there a mutually agreeable fee will be determined.
I will create an initial sketch directly on the canvas based on our discussions. I will then seek approval before beginning work in acrylics.
Painting can take 3-6 months or longer, relative to painting size and amount of detail. Naturally, you are welcome to request updates at any time. In fact you may visit my blog on Wednesdays when I write about my current projects.
Upon completion, final approval is required prior to payment and subsequent delivery. Please note that shipping costs will be calculated separately from the previously agreed commission fee .
