Portrait Painting Procedure:

While long sitting are not required, it is very helpful if the artist has some time to get acquainted with the client. This gives the artist and client a clear understanding of what style and quality are being sought after in the details of the portrait. This may take place at the client's location or at the artist's studio. A series of photographs will be taken as studies for the oil portrait. Professional lighting equipment can be used in addition to natural light, depending on circumstances. The selected photos will be enlarged and reviewed with the client for approval. If necessary, more photographs will be taken. Posthumous portraits may be done of good quality photos are available. Using another figure to model for better rendition of torso or hands is also a possibility in this case.

The stature of an executive portrait enhances the image of success in the corporate offices of today's business world, just as the portrait of a loved one in the home adds interest and warmth to any setting. Prices for portraits vary in accordance with size, style, and location, if travel is required. The artist will be pleased to discuss all aspects of the portrait and assist with framing as well.

Client Satisfaction is Guaranteed
