Portrait Commissions $3000 (standard format)
Portraits are a time-honoured way of documenting what is important in our lives..
From Kings and Queens to Mothers, Fathers, Grand-Ancestors
and Children, a unique essence is captured by a fine artist
for generations to come.
Working with the Artist
1) Formal sitting option
This is the classic approach to portraits used by the Masters. The individual comes to the studio for two sessions of at least three hours each. This can be a morning and afternoon or two different days. A third session may be necessary though normally two is enough.
You are encouraged to sit comfortably and to take as many stretching breaks as you like. A mirror can be placed so you can watch the process. You can listen to music or a book on tape as you are painted. Or you can meditate.
2) Photo option
The artist takes a video of the people being painted (for more spontaneity) and then selects photos from the film to accomplish the portraiture.
3) Combination of one sitting and photos.
