Prices are for tonal backgrounds; you can add a detailed background for $20.
How it works (in more detail):
Once I have received your initial message, and pricing and timescales etc. are discussed, I'll ask you for a small deposit to secure your booking. My lead time varies, but I'll do my best to work with your schedule.
Please send your photographs via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. These will be my references, and I can only go by what I see! If there is not much detail, lots of dark shadows, or very low resolution images, it means I will have to guess and fill in the areas not visible. For these reasons, I recommend multiple pictures from different angles to get clear details.
Please tell me a little bit about your friend, too, so I can get a better understanding of their personality! If the subject has passed away, and you only have limited photographs, send me what you have, and I will do my best to work with them.
During the painting process, I will keep you updated by email or facebook messages. Updates will be posted to my page as well, if there is no danger of a surprise being ruined!
When I have completed your portrait, and you are happy, I will ask for the remaining balance. I will only mail portraits once they are fully paid for. Portraits can be collected in person, too!
