When selecting your photos make sure they meet the standards below. I can use a single photo, or use multiple photos and combine them in the mock up process. Lighting and details are the most important. Remember, I can't paint what I can't see.
Deposit and Contract
Once we have finalized the concept and size a 50% deposit of the quoted price is due. The deposit will hold the next spot available. At this time I will also let you know the estimated time for completion. The entire process from deposit to delivery is 4-6 weeks. Rush orders are available upon request for an additional fee. The contract solidifies the details of the commissioned work.
After the mock up is approved I will begin the painting. I can give you pictures of the process along the way if you would like. Or it can be a final photo or unveiling of sorts once the painting is finished.
Discussing the Design
Deciding on the layout and size of your painting is the first step. The number of subjects (person, animal, car, etc.) in the painting and the size of the painting will determine the cost.
Digital Mock Up
After I receive the deposit I will begin the digital design and mock up process. Some photos are ready to paint while other concepts may need some editing to create the desired end result. This is where I will take all of the information you gave me in the discussion step, along with the photos, and create a mock up to give a better visual of the paintings design and composition.
I will send an invoice for the final 50% payment plus shipping and handling. Your painting will be securely packaged and insured. It will also be signed and dated along with a wax sealed certificate of authenticity.
