Every portrait is unique and made to your specifications.
I charge R1750 per portrait, which will be between A3 and A2 in size.
The price includes standard, registered mail postage in South Africa. Courier services are available at a small additional fee.
Bigger or smaller is possible, but will affect pricing.
Do not hesitate to ask about groups or couples.
I ship internationally, postage for international orders will be an additional fee - approximately $20 or £10 (as of 2017).
When you commission a portrait we usually start by deciding on the source material for the portrait itself. We can meet in person if you are located in the Gauteng area, and I can take my own reference photographs and sketches if the subject is available, or you can send me the pictures you would like me to work from.
I prefer to have some information about the person, perhaps a favourite colour or a personality trait, to aid me in capturing their character well.
I can either work in naturalistic full colour, or we can decide on a colour scheme together (black and white or sepia tones are often a very striking alternative).
At this point, I will make a quote, which once accepted will have me begin working.
I am happy to send a sketch for approval before painting commences, if desired.
It takes about a week from start of work to completed portrait (it may go faster or take longer, depending on circumstances. You will definitely be kept informed. Nevertheless, a week is a fair estimate of time).
Upon completion I will send you a high quality photograph of the portrait.
The portrait will be varnished to ensure the maximum possible longevity, and as soon as full payment has been received, it will be sent for delivery. Delivery can either happen in person, through the postal service, or via a courier.Contact Me for a Quote
