Procedure
1. The first meeting is to discuss and reach agreement regarding the portrait size, medium, background, clothing, accessories, and any other elements to be included in the portrait. We also discuss where the portrait will hang and any precedent to be followed.

From this information, the final price is determined and a contract of agreement is signed. A one-third deposit is required at this time.

2. The second meeting may occur on the same day or on another date. It consists of photographing the subject in a variety of outfits, settings and poses. Set-up for the photography takes about an hour, followed by an hour or more photographing the subject. At this sitting, a quick oil sketch of the subject's head is normally done as reference. This takes approximately two hours.

3. Next, a small preliminary color oil sketch and a full-sized preliminary drawing of the portrait is done. These are presented to the client for approval and/or adjustments. Upon approval, these are used to begin the actual painting. Several live sittings are preferred, if schedules permit, but at least one final sitting is needed for any minor adjustment, correction, and completion of the desired expression of the portrait.

4. After the final sitting and acceptance of the portrait, payment of the remaining balance on the contract is due.

5. The cost and selection of the frame is separate from the portrait. Upon request, framing recommendations can be given.

6. Travel, mileage, shipping, and other associated expenses are additional. These are itemized and billed separately from the portrait.
