You like my work and you would like to order a portrait? Here is how to proceed
To create a portrait, I need the following information:
1. One or several photos with a minimum size of 10 X 15 cm. The larger the size, the better for making out
2. You may also send me digital photos by E-mail. The size of the picture should be 800 px min. on the
longest side. Even better is the original size of the picture if you upload it from your camera on your pc.
Usually the longest side takes between 2000px and 3000px.
3. The person or animal should be easily recognizable. For that reason, contre-jours shots and fuzzy
pictures are not suitable.
4. You´re welcome to send me several photos from different perspectives as a zip file.
5. For a head portrait, only the head needs to be visible.
Usually you receive an offer 48 hours after your inquiry. If you agree with the terms, prices, and advanced payment, I will start the work on your portrait. You will receive the information of payment by E-mail if you do not wish any changes.
Immediately after my finishing the portrait, you will receive a scanned view of your picture. Should there be any wish for amodification, please let me know. If not, you will receive a mail which informs you about the payment.
Within 24 hours after I receive the payment, the finished, safely packed and fixed portrait is given to dispatch.
I ask for a pre-payment of 50 % from the portrait - endprice at the beginning of the work. Until you have approved a final proof of the
finished portrait, you pay the second half. Please remember, the detail of the final portrait is
directly related to the quality and focus of the photographs you send.Extra
photos are also suggested as these can serve as a reference for
colouring,close-up details,and personality.
Portraits may be any dimension you prefer. I paint on high quality
paper/stretched canvas/masonite panel using the finest quality materials.
I am unable to frame portraits for you as it makes them too expensive to post and there is
a risk of the glass breaking and damaging your portrait.If you have any
questions or comments about my work please don`t hesitate to contact me and
I will do my best to answer them.
I ship worlwide incl. the insurance.
Prices may vary slightly according to the specifics of each painting,but the
majority of portraits fall under the rates below.
