portrait will remain with me.

THE  OIL PORTRAIT CREATION

If plausible, the first meeting can be either at the home of the subject or at the artist's studio. The basic composition, size, pose, format, type of clothing, tone, background, and lighting are all considered. A series of digital photographs will be taken.
 
The photographs will be studied and a final decision made as to pose and tone of the painting. If necessary, additional photographs can be taken at a second photo shoot.

Upon completion of the painting and acceptance by the client, the portrait will be delivered.

On the occasion that the subject is not available (as in a posthumous portrait), the portrait can be created using available photographs.
