Portrait Examples with prices
All portraits begin with a sitting. We meet and we set up for the portrait painting. The pose, clothes and light are carefully considered. I use my camera to find in the lens an expression and likeness from which to paint the portrait. In a single sitting we create the photographic references. They are most often complete enough that I can paint the work entirely based on one sitting,
Children especially like a portrait sitting to happen within a short space of time, twenty minutes to half an hour, Actually, what I have discovered is that, most everyone finds a single brief sitting to their liking.
Sometimes I travel to sittings rather than hosting them in my studio in Sandwich. When I am away from the studio I charge a daily rate of £100 as well as my travel and accommodation expenses. The specific considerations we can work out between us to best fit the project.
Once we have met for a sitting and know where we are going with the portrait, I accept from you half of the total amount as a non-refundable deposit.
The remaining amount is due when you receive the finished painting,
