Below is a quick tour of a recently commissioned three subject, 22" x 24", family portrait painting using sepia tones. The process began when the client emailed the following 3 x 5 reference photographs.
Within 2 days the client received the following emailed composition sketches designed to fit the desired canvas size.
Client and artist collaborated on refinements and an additional proof was emailed.
Client approved composition and the following week received color study of portrait in desired sepia tones.
A second proof features the completed background and wardrobes.
