| HEAD AND SHOULDERS

listed are for a single figure painted approximately life size, using
archival oils on Belgian linen.
Canvas size is determined by artist and client. Additional figures
and pets will be priced by quote.
Charcoal or graphite portraits on archival paper may be commissioned
for 1/3 of the oil on linen prices.
Framing, shipping, travel and accommodation expenses are additional.
A 40% deposit is required to confirm an accepted commission. The balance
of the fee is due upon the portrait's completion and the client's
full approval of the portrait.
Ms. Lee encourages her clients' involvement in all the decision making
stages. Before the first sitting, she will begin to plan the portrait
as the client envisions it, discussing by phone such aspects as mood,
size, setting, and clothing. At the client's chosen location, Ms.
Lee will complete an extensive photo shoot, typically lasting one
to two hours. Ms. Lee and the client will review the photographs together
to determine the best poses and expressions. The photographs, along
with color notes and sketches, will be used as the artist's references
for creating the portrait.
After returning to her studio, Ms. Lee will make preliminary sketches
of the portrait composition. For paintings larger than head &
shoulders, a sketch of the composition will be shipped to the client
for approval before the painting is started. After the preliminary
sketch has been approved and the final size of the canvas has been
determined, Ms. Lee will begin painting the portrait.
When the portrait is completed, a photo or digital image will be sent
to the client for approval, and arrangements will be made for the
portrait to be delivered or shipped. Ms. Lee will offer framing advice
and arrange to have the portrait framed before it is delivered, if
the client so desires.
Current delivery time is approximately 18-24 months.
