Step 2: photographs

Select the photograph/s on which you would like your portrait based. It may be possible to combine figures from multiple photographs. Advise on choosing photographs...

Step 3: commission

Contact me with your commission. I accept photos via e-mail or post.

Step 4: confirmation

I will acknowledge receipt of your commission via e-mail, confirm a price and provide an estimated completion date. The completion date will depend on the complexity of the commission and my current workload. If you have not already done so, you will need to send me your photo/s.

Step 5: deposit

A 50% deposit* will be required. Payment may be made by cheque or secure online payment via PayPal.com.

Step 6: proofing & postage

Once I have finished your portrait, I will e-mail a scan for approval with final payment instructions. The completed portrait will be sent once final payment has been received.
