Once you have selected an artist, your sales associate is eager to assist you in every facet of the commissioning process. We pride ourselves on exceptional service and assume full responsibility for scheduling a sitting date, arranging travel, if desired, offering wardrobe and location advice, facilitating final delivery and if requested framing, unveiling and installation.
Prior to the sitting you will discuss with the artist the reasons you have selected him/her. Details of the portrait will also be discussed – overall tone, composition, wardrobe, and where the portrait will hang. The artist will then proceed with a photography session and possibly sketches for his/her reference material. With most sittings, the artist and the client will review the photographs together to select images that best capture the expression and personality of the subject. The length of the sitting varies by artist; however, no matter the time, this is an important step and time for artist/client communication.
