Procedures for portraits:

The first sitting takes place takes place in the subjects home or office where we discuss the particulars of the portrait(size, pose, clothing to be worn etc.) At this time I may take photos of the subject.

The next sitting consists of additional photos and or pencil or color studies of the subject to give the client an idea of the final piece plus any input and/or suggestions they may have before I begin the work.

During the studio time I usually work from one to three months until completion. The complexity of the work also influences the completion time.
