The Portrait Process

My process typically starts with a short meeting and photo session at your home. From my photos I create a drawing to propose a composition. I paint in either oil or gouache on linen, canvas or paper, and can usually complete the process within four months. I prefer to use my own photos but can also work from your high resolution images. I have been drawing and painting people all my life, and have completed more than 100 oil commissions in the last 20 years. For more information or to commission a portrait, please email me.
