How to Commission a Portrait

1. Initial Consultation

An initial consultation can take place via email or phone to discuss a possible commission. This would just be an initial chat to answer any questions and for me to gain an idea of the subject. We would also discuss options of size and prices.

2. Beginning the Painting

An initial payment equal to 50% of the total fee will be required to secure the commission and then I can begin taking photographs of the subject to work from. I will usually visit to take the photographs, where the subject will be in their own surroundings and a selection of clothing will be available.

3. Completion of the Painting

I will then begin painting and give you a collection / delivery date . For a single head and shoulders piece this will usually be about 6 weeks, but a painting involving one or more full figures will obviously take longer.

The remaining 50% of the fee will then be due upon delivery / collection of the portrait.
