COMMISSIONS

Commission Procedures

Portrait painting requires a certain amount of trust and close collaboration between the artist, the client and the subject.  I require a frank and throrough discussion between myself and any potential client about the commission project. A clear understanding of what is expected for the commission in order to create a memorable portrait which meets the client’s expectation.  We will discuss the subject and the general vision of the work with regard to size, placement, and background.  I would be given reference photos or take my own of the subject. A contract is presented and agreed upon and thereafter a 50% deposit is made to begin work on the commission.
