When you are thinking about commissioning a portrait from me, feel free to arrange a consultation free of costs at my studio.

At my studio you can have a close look at some portraits and I can explain the portrait commissioning proces.

A special occasion? 

Do you have something special to celebrate such as a wedding, anniversary or you want to give a gift to a loved one?  Then an oil portrait painting is an exclusive gift! A portrait painting: realistic and captivating, painted from life.  A colorful work of art painted with oil on fine linen canvas or panel, in a classic style and yet with a modern look.

Working method for an assignment

We discuss your wishes and the possibilities in advance: the format, the pose, composition, clothing, the posing sessions, etc.  At the first session I make sketches and photos.  After choosing the final composition, I paint the portrait directly from life and also use photos for support.  After the last posing session, the person portrayed and/or client can come and see the result. After approval of the client, I will complete the painting in the absence of the model.  

Price indication

As an example, a portrait of the head to shoulders of one person on linen cloth or panel of 40×50 cm costs from € 750. Other formats or a portrait of several people are also possible; price on request. Deposit : 25% of the amount.
