COMMISSIONS

THE PORTRAIT PROCESS


The portrait process begins with a discussion of the wishes of the client and includes topics such as pose, clothing and backgrounds.

A photo session is scheduled. Photos are taken and the session may take up to 2 hours. A follow up session may be required. Although I prefer to take the photographs myself it may be necessary to work with photos you have on hand which would be ok.

In the studio I make preliminary drawings from the reference photos showing the pose and backgrounds etc. as discussed. These drawings will be delivered or emailed to the client for selection and approval. A final sketch will be delivered or emailed to the client for approval or adjustments.

The finished drawing is presented at the final meeting and if everyone is happy the remainder of payment is accepted.
