Frequently Asked Questions

Timing depends on prior commitments and amount of detail in photograph.

Portrait Drawings:
A4, roughly 1 – 2 weeks
A3 – A2, roughly 2 – 3 weeks

Portrait Paintings:
Independent of size, minimum 2 to 3months.
Timing is affected by the amount of time it takes for the oil to dry.  Painting must be completely dry before I can add a coat of Matt or Gloss Varnish.

The quality of the portrait artwork depends highly on the quality of the reference material. So choosing the correct photograph is extremely important.  Here is a list of things you should consider.

  • High-Quality Resolution photographs at least 3 – 5MB in size.  If you had photos taken professionally always email me the original photograph
  • Good quality lighting. The play between light and dark makes an interesting portrait
  • No flash as it tends to flatten the features
  • 3-Quarter face is preferable as it shows a more dynamic 3D view
