1- If the client lives locally and has the available time, he or
she would be painted from life, requiring a number of sit-in sessions.
2- If the client is unable to have sit-in sessions, a series of
photographs will be taken in my studio preferably or in the client's
place but under some of my special lights or by using natural light
coming from a window or skylight. Even when not painted entirely
from life, I would require at least, one sit-in session at the beginning
and another at the end of the painting.
3- A contract will be signed after the client has approved a particular
photograph or sketch to start the painting. The contract will have
tentative date for the delivery of the finished portrait.
4- One third of the fee will be paid up front, another third after
completion of the grisaille or under painting and the final third
at the time of delivery of the portrait, which will be framed and
ready for hanging..
