Portraitures

I am available for portrait commissions.

My method includes working from both live sitting and photographs taken by me. Ideally, the live sitting would take two or three hours, but sometimes if we are short for time, we can work with one hour of live sitting where I will take photographs, and then use the photograph as a reference.

If working from life is not possible due to distance, I can work from photographs, as long as the photographs are not professionally taken (the photographer retains the copyright of the image, and I respect copyrights).

The first two portrait samples are an example of seated portraits, and the third portrait are an example of working from a photograph and incorporating imaginative elements.

My pricing varies depending on the finished portrait size and surface. These are typical rates I charge for a single sitter.

  • 9″ x 12″ – $300
  • 11″ x 14″ – $450
  • 16″ x 20″ = $725

If you have specific size requirements, or would like to have more than one person in a portrait, please contact me for a quote.

I also do quick studies and draw portraits in graphite on paper – prices vary depending on size, beginning at $100 for an 8″ x 10″ archival paper. Contact me for a quote.
