Commissioning a Portrait
This is a brief guide to commissioning a portrait.
I’m very happy to offer more information on any aspect of my portraits and work, including your reference photos, my process, delivery or framing.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Get in touch – use the contact form or email your enquiry or order
Send some photos – add some photos to your message or email or send them separately later
Details – I’ll get straight back to you to confirm or discuss your requirements
Composition – I’ll email one or more digital compositions or ‘mock-ups’ for your approval or to help you choose
Quote – I’ll email a formal quote listing all details including size, medium, composition, price and deadline and then add your commission to my list
Painting – I’ll start work on your portrait – please allow around 4 weeks for completion unless another deadline has been confirmed – oil paintings may take longer
Approval – when your portrait is completed I’ll email a scan or photo for your approval
Adjustments – I’ll make any adjustments required
Invoice – when you are completely happy I’ll email your invoice which can be paid online with any debit or credit card or by Paypal or BACS
Payment – when payment has been received, your portrait will be safely packaged ready for posting
Delivery – your portrait will be posted; tracked and insured, for delivery within 2 days to UK addresses and within 10 days for overseas addresses
Feedback – I’d be delighted if you’d leave a review or feedback. It’s always lovely to see a photo your portrait when it’s been framed and hung too.
