Commissioned portrait by Joseph Accorso, FF Thompson Hospital, Canandaigua NY
COMMISSIONING A PORTRAIT
Good communication with the subject of the portrait is a must. We discuss how they want to be portrayed: the portrait size, mood, colors, surroundings, and composition. This is invaluable information I can use to produce a portrait reflecting the person’s personality and accentuating their looks. The result is a portrait that is flattering and alive. If you are interested in commissioning a portrait, use my contact information to start the process. I suggest providing the following information to give me rough idea of the scope of your portrait project: who is to be portrayed, are photos of the subject available or will photography need to be done, and what size figure – head and shoulders, half-figure, three-quarters figure, full figure – will I portray.
COMMISSIONING A LANDSCAPE
When I speak with someone about their landscape commission, I want to know the particular place they wish portrayed and why. Mood, color, and emotions evoked play a part in the creation of the landscape. I combine these elements along with my technical expertise to create a vibrant, evocative, and beautiful landscape. If you are interested in commissioning a landscape, use my contact information to start the process. I suggest providing a brief description of the subject matter of the landscape, and roughly the size you have in mind. I will also need to know if photographs are available for reference or will I take photographs. The information launches our discussion of you painting’s composition.
