Shipping and handling costs are additional. Your portrait will be sent in a traditional French drawing portfolio, via Colissimo, a French postal service, insured and with a tracking number.
COMMISSIONING A PORTRAIT
I work from photograph and/or from live sittings.
Please send me a email regarding your project for a portrait, and then let's schedule a telephone call or a Zoom meeting at your convenience.
Once a choice has been made regarding a favorite photo of yourself, a loved one or a cherished pet, we'll discuss your preferences in portrait size, technique and paper shade.
My techniques include graphite or charcoal pencil, red chalk (sanguine), 3-color pencil and pastel. I use a high quality, acid-free paper in colored, white or ivory tones as well as hand-tinted paper.
You can view various examples of these styles on the portraits shown on the Portrait Gallery pages of this site, under the tabs for Children, Adults and Animals.
A deposit of 50% is requested via PayPal or by bank transfer, with the balance due upon completion of the portrait.
A photo of the finalized portrait will be sent for your approval before shipping.
TIMING & DELIVERY
Allow one week from receipt of your photo for the completion of the drawing, and an additional week for overseas shipping.
