A large part of my practice is commissioned portraiture. I find it extremely rewarding to produce portraits of children, family and friends; together or solo. It is such an honour to try and capture the unique features and traits that make us each unique and to bring joy to others through the process.
My commissioned portraits, unframed, price from $550 upwards, depending upon the size and number of subjects. I can also arrange framing at an additional cost and will quote the price once the work is compete if this is the preferred option.
I start each commission by discussing with you exactly what you visualise for the work, the approximate size, any specific requirements for mood or tone and any timelines you are working toward. I will then send you a terms sheet setting out the parameters discussed for you to approve.
I will then ask you to send me a number of photos of the portrait subject and if possible I enjoy meeting the subject to get to know their personality as well. I will then complete a sketch of the proposed composition of the work and send a digital image of the sketch to you for your approval. If you approve the initial sketch, a 50% deposit payment is required before I commence the final work.
