The table below lists guide prices for a portrait in pastel. Additional costs will be incurred for a background. Other sizes and formats (i.e square) are available, and prices are available upon request. A 50% deposit is required in advance with the balance payable on completion. All prices are exclusive of shipping costs.
If you are thinking of commissioning a portrait, please ensure you have a high-quality photograph before contacting me. The following are some useful guidelines to consider when selecting or taking a photograph for your portrait:
- HIGH RESOLUTION. Your photograph should use the maximum resolution of your device (around a minimum of 2000 pixels wide) and preferably taken with a quality camera.
- IN FOCUS. The photo should be as sharp as possible with minimal blurriness and lots of fine detail visible such as highlights in the eyes and individual hairs on the face.
- EYE-LEVEL. The photo should be taken at the same height as the subject to avoid unnatural angles and distortions caused by perspective.
- NATURAL LIGHT. The subject should be photographed outside in natural daylight, preferably on an overcast day or in shade out of direct sunlight, or inside by a large window. Do not use artificial light or camera flash as they produce unnatural colours and highlights.
