OIL Portrait Procedure:
An initial discussion would take place regarding your general expectations of the portrait. Once a commitment is made, a 40% deposit would be given and an approx. 30 minute photo shoot would be scheduled if needed.
When the artist's proposed composition is approved, sittings (if needed) would be scheduled. The painting would then commence and the final payment would be due upon acceptable completion of the work.
