Commissioning a Portrait
For both drawings and oils there will usually be approximately 2 - 4 sittings of about one and a half hours each at Kidderminster studio or at the client's home.

When a drawing has been commissioned the artist produces three or four from which the client can choose the one they prefer.

Extra drawings may be purchased at a mutually agreeable price.
