Q.How much does a portrait cost?
Prices depend on the
medium - graphite, colored pencil, or oil - and the size and complexity of the portrait.
Please see the price guide for an idea. A 35% deposit is required for work to begin. The remainder is
due upon completion.
Q.How long does it take?
Graphite and colored pencil portraits take from two to three months once they are scheduled. Oil paintings take longer. Commissions wanted for delivery in the holiday season best scheduled by October.
Q.Do you work from photographs?
Yes - In order to create
a portrait that captures the subject, good quality photographs
are required. High resolution digital images are great but I can also work with
traditional photographs of good quality.
A portrait can also be created from several less
than ideal poses or shots. However, if you don’t have any good pictures, I can
let you know if I can work with what you have along
with verbal descriptions.
Q.Do you do other animals?
Yes! Any animal companion is welcome.
