Portrait Commissions:

Working on a portrait commission in Florence, Italy.

I do portrait paintings on commission throughout the year.  For the greater part of the portrait I will need to work directly from life. Luckily I paint fast, and my requirements are minimal. I usually require 3 to 10 sittings of 2 hours each, depending on the complexity of the portrait. I feel that working from life gives me a much great accuracy in the likeness and character of my sitter.

In the past I have traveled to clients homes for commissions, or they have visited me for a week or so to be painted in my studio, enjoying the beauty and culture of the region in their free time.
