All portraits are done in oil. I work from photographs. You can provide me with a picture of your own or I can take a photo myself. If you provide me with a picture, the more detail the better, especially in the face. Close-up shots usually work the best. If you decide you want a new picture, I usually take a couple shots with a digital camera and then we can decide on the shot which is the best.
Any shipping costs are added onto the original price.
A portrait usually takes anywhere from two weeks to a month to paint. The amount of time it takes to finish your portrait depends on how many commissions I have scheduled at the time. If you need a portrait by a specific date I'll do my best to make it work.
