Custom Portrait Pricing

Oil, charcoal, and pencil portraits will vary in price generally according to the size and complexity of the desired portrait image. Pricing is determined specifically by the amount of detail desired for the individual portrayed in the portrait (ranging from a head study to a full size, full body portrait), this also includes complexity of the background imagery - whether the background is complex and detailed, loosely indicated, or a simple artistic textured background. Shipping costs (if needed) are not included in these rates but will be included in the bill.

Generally, a downpayment of one third of the decided price is required to secure a place ahead of other commissions (particularly if a specific deadline is required such as for holidays, birthdays, and special occasions). All deposits are non-refundable. Remaining costs can be paid in one or two installments but will be due upon completion and approval of the finished work. Approval and payment may be done either in person or by email if the artwork is to be shipped.
