Portrait Procedure

Capturing your portrait

The artist will travel to the client’s location for an initial meeting to discuss the desired setting, mood, pose, and attire for the portrait. In some cases, an assistant may accompany the artist during the photo shoot to provide additional support, at no extra cost to the client. A photography session lasting approximately 2-2.5 hours will be scheduled for either the morning or afternoon. The subject will be photographed digitally, and depending on the available time, a brief or more comprehensive review of the images will be conducted. Throughout the photography process, there will be breaks to allow the client to view the captured images and confirm the desired appearance and pose. Once it is confirmed that the desired outcome has been achieved, the artist will return to her studio to edit the photographs and send them to the client. The client will then have the opportunity to take their time in making the final selection. After the selection and size approval, the artist will utilize the chosen image as a reference for painting. Upon completion, the finished portrait will be shipped to the client.

To Begin

embark on your artistic journey

Every painting is created using the finest materials, including linen canvas of the highest quality. The canvas is either stretched on sturdy stretcher bars or mounted to archival board for durability. I initiate the process by creating a detailed sketch or underpainting, and then gradually layer oil paint to bring the artwork to life.

The completion time of each painting may vary, ranging from 2 to 9 months, depending on the complexity and size of the piece. Please note that the price quoted does not include framing; however, I am more than happy to provide assistance and recommendations in selecting the ideal frame to enhance the artwork’s beauty.
