Portrait Commissions & Sales
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re considering a portrait commission or are interested in buying a painting.
For portrait commissions, I approach each project as a collaboration between artist and client and am happy to explore ideas with you.
Small portraits (5x7 inches @ $200, 8x10 inches @ $350) from photos provided by client take 4 to 6 weeks. These are often sufficient in themselves or can help you decide if you want to commit to something bigger.
Larger paintings (9x12 inches and up to about 2 x 3 feet) begin with an initial phone meeting to discuss the project followed by one to two in-person sketching sessions and photo shoot. After we agree on the portrait composition and size, it takes 3 to 6 months to create the painting. During the painting process, I will check in with you at key points to keep you informed. The goal is to make sure you’ll enjoy the final product.
Pricing and timing vary with size and complexity.
