A successful portrait is the result of a true partnership between client and artist.
Upon being commissioned, an initial consultation will be scheduled so that Ms. McArthur can understand what the client would like to achieve and answer any questions about location and dress for the sitting.
A photography session will follow, either in the studio or on location. For posthumous portraits, Ms. McArthur will work with the client to select the appropriate photograph from personal archives. The next meeting will be to select and review the photographic references to be used in the portrait. After completion, the portrait will be delivered or shipped to the client.
A discount is given for additional figures in the same portrait. All portraits are painted in approximately life sized proportion.
Fees do not include framing, sales taxes, travel or shipping expenses. Preliminary costs such as travel are billed when incurred. A deposit of 20% will secure a place on the artist’s portrait calendar. The balance is due when the portrait is delivered.
