How will the consultation about the portrait go?
After your purchase, you will be contacted by email within 2 business days.
In that email, I will ask you a series of questions, and ask you to let me know about the commission.
You will choose how many objects/people you want illustrated, and I will invoice you for any additional amounts.
How big will my drawing be?
8×10 size, painted on a 8.5 x 11 on high quality drawing paper, so you have ample room for framing.
What is it drawn on?
Archival drawing paper
What medium is used?
You have the choice of either graphite on white paper, or graphite and chalk on toned (grey) paper. Both examples are shown below.
What style will the drawing be done in?
The commissions are done in a realistic manner, meant to catch a very close likeness to subject. The drawings are detailed and “tight” rather then loose in the handling. There will be NO background ie landscapes, objects, etc in any of these portraits.
