Portrait, nude and oyster painting commissions
The first step is a consultation about your ideas. We'll talk about composition, size, price and schedule and see if we are a good fit. If we are, great! I'll provide a contract for you to sign and a 30% deposit is required for the process to begin. The second step is a photo shoot at your home (not for the oyster paintings) or a convenient location which should take no more than a few hours. I also like to schedule a second photo shoot as a back up. I want to get the image just right! The third step is to edit the images and send you final selections via email for consideration. The fourth step is a review of a full-size print of the final image selection and approval to start the painting. Depending on my schedule, paintings can take anywhere from 6 months to a year or more.
* For additional figures in the portrait and nude commissions, please add 50% per figure of the original cost. Packing, crating, shipping, insurance, travel, meals, framing, insurance and taxes are not included. A 30% deposit is required to begin a commission, 30% upon approval to start painting and the balance due upon completion. A signed contract and photo release are also required.
