My fees vary, according to size of canvas and number of people
in the portrait. The following prices are for single portraits.
To add an additional figure, the price will increase 50 %.
All sizes below are approximate and can be adjusted (taking into
consideration hanging site of the portrait, compositional needs,
etc.). If you have an antique frame you would like to use, the portrait
can be made to fit.
|Small portrait: bust (ca. 20" x 16")
|Medium portrait: bust (ca. 30" x 24")
|Large portrait: 1/2 figure or 3/4 length seated (ca. 36"
|X-large portrait: full-figure seated or 3/4 figure standing
(ca. 48" x 38")
A deposit of 1/2 the total is required before commencing a portrait.
The remainder is due upon acceptable completion of the work. The
prices above do not include sales tax, framing, or travel expenses.
All paintings are executed using the finest quality oil paints
and linen canvas.
I can provide assistance with high quality framing.
An initial conversation is held to discuss the general expectations
of the portrait (practical and aesthetic). Once a commitment to
the portrait is made, a meeting is scheduled to find the suitable
composition, dress, etc. This includes a photo shoot (approximately
one hour). When the decision is made to proceed with the composition
(usually confirmed by photographs), a schedule of sittings is determined,
The portrait is painted either from sittings, photograph(s), or
a combination (as determined by client and/or artist preference,
time consideration, distance factor, and availability of subject).
Upon completion, the portrait is delivered personally or by mail
(if long distance). Upon receipt and acceptance of the painting,
the final payment for the portrait is due, including any additional
expenses, if applicable ie. travel, shipping.
