If you've decided you would like a horse portrait, our first step is a simple conversation. Just email me your contact information and any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 519-369-1152.
We will work together to determine if your existing photographs are suitable, or if more will need to be taken.
Portraits are done from your photos and may be sent to me digitally by email as high resolution jpeg or tif files. Alternately, original photos can be sent through the mail compiled digitally on a CD or as hard copy prints.
Once I have suitable references to work from, I will suggest what I feel is the best way to set up the portrait. Due to the unique factors that go into creating each portrait, prices vary.
I will quote a price to you based on materials, complexity and the size you've requested before any work begins. Usually, the following fees are standard based on a head shot (portrait) with a rendered or plain background.
Prices for a full colour oil painting begin at: 8 x 10 - $300 9 x 12 - $400
