The Commission Process
Commission a Portrait in 3 Simple Steps
Meet with the Artist
In order to paint a portrait I need to get to know that person. A good portrait captures a likeness, a great portrait reveals their character.
2. Schedule a Photo Session
Using professional photo equipment I shoot references for the painting. Paintings require specific lighting which is different than a typical photo portrait. Once we have photo choices for the portrait I take the images back to the studio and paint the portrait.
3. DELIVER The PORTRAIT
After, you have approved the digital images of the portrait, it is then delivered to you in person where the portrait is formally unveiled.
