The following is an outline of what is needed from each client. I prefer to work from life, but I respect the schedules of each client to guide the process. During our initial meeting any adjustments to the following schedule can be discussed.
|Speak with client and get to know their character. Discuss the image that the client wishes to convey. Afterwards a photo-session is held. Time involved: 1-2 hours.
|Approve photographs and take supplementary stills if needed. Time involved: 1-2 hours.
|If the portrait is at least a ¾ figure, a color study will be executed prior to this meeting. Color study is presented and approved by Client. Client then poses for a color study of their head (hands if necessary). Time involved: 2-3 hours.
-All approved information (notes, sketches, photos) are taken to my studio, where the portrait is executed.Time involved:This will vary according to my workload at that time and the client’s needs.
-A photograph or images by e-mail of the completed portrait will be sent. Client is contacted and the portrait is discussed. Any changes, if necessary, are noted.
|Delivery of portrait by artist and adjustment of any subtle details if necessary. Time involved: 0-2 hours
*The procedure for a portrait executed from life would be approached similarly to the above, with the addition of live sittings. For example, a portrait bust would require a minimum of five sittings at two hours each session. Time requirements for more complex portraits would be addressed against relative needs. I am comfortable working in my studio or on site.
