For faces, send me one photo as the main reference.
Include 2-4 other images of the same person from slightly different angles so I can get a feel for how they look.
For paintings of a figure, I only need one photo in the desired pose.
I usually don’t include the background of the reference photo unless it is an important part of the subject matter (like the wave for a surfer) so don’t worry about what or who is in the picture besides the main person.
Use the gold button below ("Commission a Painting") to send me an email to inquire about having me do an original painting for you.
Include reference photos (these don't have to be perfect.)
I will contact you to discuss details of the painting, including pricing and size.
