WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
My process begins with a consultation, either by phone or in person. During this conversation we will discuss your child’s personality, clothing options, the general feeling of the portrait and the location of the initial photography session.
The photography session is scheduled, an hour is normally sufficient. I prefer to work in the early morning or late afternoon when the sun is low and the light is soft and flattering. A week or so later a viewing appointment is scheduled at the studio to make choices for the final painting.
Once your final choice is made, I will work on the painting until I feel satisfied with the direction it is taking and you will come in to approve it. At this time we will talk about any changes you feel might be needed. I think of this entire process as a collaboration between us to come to a final painting that you will love.
HOW LARGE SHOULD A PAINTING BE?
Finished size is often dictated by the type of painting you are interested in – head and shoulders portraits tend to be smaller (20 inches and under), while ¾ views generally are 24 inches and up, and full length paintings can be even larger still.
The location where the painting is to be displayed in your home also comes into play when deciding on the size. You may have a nook or space in your home that you want to hang a portrait and we can work together to create a custom sized piece for it.
HOW LONG DOES THIS PROCESS TAKE?
As with everything handcrafted, quality takes time. Depending on your schedule and mine, it could take 4 - 6 months or it could take a bit longer. Sometimes I have to just sit with it a bit to discover what finishing touches are needed. The most important thing when making an investment in a painting is to be sure it is right and I will promise you that it will be right.
