oil paint commision
Discussion with the client is welcome and necessary throughout the portrait procedure. Of utmost importance is a trusting relationship between the painter and the client. It is in my clients' best interest to accept input and assistance in choosing the setting, wardrobe, pose and lighting for the subject of the painting.It is not just how I place paint on canvas that makes me an artist. It is how I see, arrange, compose, and "feel about the subject" that are of equal, if not more, importance. I work carefully with you to ensure that your painting will be a true, classic portrait, that captures the likeness as well as the spirit of the subject.Whenever possible, I prefer to spend some time merely chatting with and getting to know the subject for an hour or so before any sketching or photography is done., either by phone or email. These are the gestures, the expressions and the attitudes that I capture in my memory, to recreate on canvas a true likeness — a reflection of the person that is known, not just a correct arrangement of features. I usually need more than 1 photo of you in costume, with particular lighting.....if possible!
