Custom Portrait Commissions

As the owner of Prudence I can’t begin to tell you how perfectly you captured her. Thanks for a portrait we’ll treasure for many years to come.

What’s The Process, What Do You Get?

When you commission a portrait by Greg,

  • Custom portrait commissions are done in either watercolor and/or egg tempera or charcoal and graphite.

  • If you are local to Greg, he will take photographic references or sift through reference provided by you, the client. Sometimes multiple photos work better to get the final composition correct and reflect the personality of the subject.

  • If you are not local, Greg will review provided references and/or suggest better ways to get the right references. Sometimes multiple photos work better to get the final composition correct.

  • The composition will be provided to ensure the client understands what the final piece will look like before the painting process begins.

  • All pieces are delivered in a basic black from with white matting to protect the piece for sizes 16x20 and smaller. Sizes larger will incur an up-charge for the frame.

How Much?

Base price is determined by linear inch.  Keep in mind background subject matter as well as additional subjects wich increase complexity and sometimes require additional pricing.  Contact Greg for pricing on commissions based on subject matter of your choosing.

Rules Of Engagement

  • The composition will be provided prior to painting which will be signed by you as approval.
