Portraiture is one of the oldest art forms. Nothing compares with the classic experience of posing for a painting. My aim is to capture and depict the personality of my model, whom I will paint in a loose and impressionistic manner. A portrait commission entails an initial sitting of about two hours in my studio, where I will do some preliminary painting and get a personal sense of the essential nature of the subject. Reference photos will then be taken in order to continue on my own. Additional sittings may be necessary. Cost depends on the size of canvas selected.
