"How do I commission a portrait painting?"

Process

To start the commission process, simply contact Lisa Bane and start the conversation.

Lisa will gather the information needed for creating your portrait and answer any questions you may have.

There are a few options for the painting process.  

We can discuss which option works best for the portrait you want to commission.

Live Sittings: Lisa will meet with the subject and paint while they sit for her, for a few sessions until the painting is complete.  

This works better for a head and shoulders portrait of a person; pets would not sit still long enough.  

Reference Photoshoot: Lisa will meet with the subject, take some reference photos, possibly do a reference sketch, and then finish the painting in her studio.  

 

*The first two options are preferred by the artist in order to have the best results. 

Reference Photos from Client: You could send Lisa several good quality photos of the subject and she will choose which ones to use as a reference for the painting.   (Photos taken with natural light without a flash are best for portrait paintings.)

This is the popular option for pet portraits.  

 

(Travel and lodging are additional client expenses if artist travels more than 3 hours.)

*Framing not included, but may be done upon client's request.

"How do I pay for my portrait painting?"

Payment

A 30% deposit is required before starting the commission, once the details of the commission are agreed upon.

Payments through PayPal, credit cards, and checks are accepted.  Final payment is due once the final portrait has been approved by the client.
