QUESTIONNAIRE—the first step is to complete the commission questionnaire. This gives me a general idea of some of the specifics I would need to know about your painting. We will then schedule a 1-on-1 consultation call within a few days of your response.
PRICING & SCHEDULING—You will receive your estimate via email. Once we agree to move forward, I will request two separate payments. The first will be a security deposit (50% of the total cost) ensuring that you understand the commission FAQs, you’ve read the refund policy, and you’re ready to get started.
THUMBNAIL STUDIES—This is where the creating begins! I will complete a small scale illustration of your painting and send1- 2 photographs via email for you to review. These small studies will have the general composition and color arrangement for your larger original. This will be the time we work together to make any necessary adjustments.
THE CANVAS—Once you approve of the composition/color choices, I will begin your actual canvas. While I will use the thumbnail study to guide me, your original may not be an exact match. There is a spontaneity that goes into each piece that I create which gives your original it’s unique feel. Once completed, official photos and detail shots will be emailed. After the painting has been approved, I will request the final cost (last 50% of total cost, plus shipping) and your painting will be securely sent to you!
