The first step in commissioning a portrait is to contact me or a representative, and arrange for an initial phone conversation or visit to the studio.
We will discuss ideas for the piece with you, the client, and any involved representatives.
Where will the painting hang?
How large will it be? How formal?
What special objects or clothing may be used?
Where will the sitting take place?
The decision to be painted and by whom is an important one and a rapport between an artist and sitter is essential. The experience should be comfortable as well as memorable.
