4 Steps to your own bespoke piece of art:
Stage One: concept conversation. The concept of and idea behind the drawing is discussed (this can be done either with me in person, by telephone or through email) Crucial points such as the size, the setting, the price, the time frame and your expectations are all determined at this stage.
Stage Two: reference. A set of good working quality photographs (digital or non-digital) is a must. These can be taken from your personal archives or by me. (Note: if they are professionally taken, written permission by the photographer for their use is obligatory). Together, we pick out several photographs that work best for the portrait. A small synopsis/description of the subject is also important. The more information I receive about my subject the more I will be able to bring your portrait to life.
- Stage Three: work begins. Once all the points have been covered and the final layout for the commission is decided upon, an non-refundable 30 % deposit confirms your order. This indicates a commitment to the project and covers my initial time, effort and supplies. The further 70% is not paid until completion and approval of the portrait. During this process I will provide you with regular progress up-dates.
- Stage Four: approval. Once the portrait is finished, I will send a final image for your viewing. Small changes can still be made at this stage. Once approved, the drawing is then signed, sprayed with a protective fixative, packaged for shipping and shipped once the final payment has been made.
Framing. Bespoke framing can be organised. Just let me know.
Shipping. The (unframed) drawing is safely packaged in a hard cardboard tube, insured and shipped priority mail. Framed drawings are crated and sent, insured, priority mail. The shipping costs vary depending on size and destination. This will be sent with the final invoice.
