Procedure

Resource Photos

By working from photographs, we can avoid the inconvenience and expense of multiple sittings. While I prefer to take the photos myself, this isn’t always feasible, especially if you’re in another part of the world or if the portrait is meant to be a surprise. In such cases, I’m happy to work with any photos you have on hand and will assist you in selecting the best ones that capture both the likeness and personality.

Selection of Resource Images

Once we have the right photos, you’ll choose the medium and size of the portrait, which will determine the final price.

Review

As the painting approaches completion, I’ll invite you to a review session to ensure every detail meets your satisfaction. This is the perfect opportunity to make any necessary adjustments to the likeness.

Delivery

We’ll arrange delivery together, ensuring it fits your schedule. Typically, you can expect your portrait to be completed within a few months from when the painting is started.

Payment

To begin your custom portrait, a non-refundable deposit of 40% of the total price is required. After significant progress has been made, a midway payment of 30% of the total price will be due. Upon completion of your portrait and before delivery, the remaining balance of 30% of the total price will be payable.

Clients have the flexibility to choose their preferred payment arrangement, whether it’s paying in two equal installments (50/50) or settling the entire amount upfront.

Please note that all deposits and installments are non-refundable to compensate for the time and resources invested in creating your custom portrait. Additionally, the final balance includes any additional costs for framing and/or shipping, ensuring a comprehensive and transparent payment process.
