PROCEDURE

Initially, the artist and client meet at the client's requested location or at the artist's studio for a consultation. A contract, which states the artist's and the client's responsibilities, is agreed upon and signed. Next, a photographic session with the sitter (s) is conducted, at which time a 50% non-refundable deposit is due. The client and the artist will together review the photographs to decide pose, lighting, expression and other details. These photographs are a supplement to, and not a replacement for, subsequent live sittings except under impractical circumstances. As few as three and as many as ten sittings may be required per sitter.

The painting process will vary depending upon the client's wishes, the portrait's complexity, the sitter's availability and the artist's work load. Often, but not always, a preliminary digital and/or a painted "sketch" is created to ensure a mutual understanding (between artist and client) regarding the general outlook of the finished portrait. When the painting is near completion, the client is given the opportunity to review it and request any reasonable alterations. Upon acceptance of the portrait, the balance of the fee is due.
