Commission your own oil painting portrait - (price shown is the deposit only)

£80.00

When Jezz, co-founder of The Audacious Beard Co, isn't busy in our beard grooming apothecary he is an award winning painter with a special interest in beardy portraits.

PRICE: (The price shown is an £80 non refundable deposit)
Full price is from £195 for a head and shoulders portrait.

HOW IT WORKS:
-Get in touch to discuss what you would like and to agree the final price for your portrait.
-Click 'add to cart' and pay the £80 deposit
-Email me high resolution photographs of the sitter.
-A small portrait will take up to a fortnight to paint plus drying time, once I have booked you a slot in my schedule.
-When complete I will send a digital preview of the painting.
-If happy you will then pay the balance and a courier will be arranged to deliver your painting.

PHOTOGRAPHY REQUIREMENTS:
Even some mobile phones now take good quality photographs. It is best to photograph your subject in gentle lighting. Having them turned slightly away from the camera is good to show the landscape of the face.
I will need at least 5-10 high quality digital photographs of the subject sent by email or wetransfer to maintain file size.. Please note they need to be of high enough quality that I can zoom in and see detail of the face without pixelation or blurring. Don’t put any filters on the photographs.

CREATIVE DISCRETION:
To create a unique and original portrait I need to have creative discretion. Exceptions would be if the client has a very strong dislike of a particular colour, etc. It is great if the sitter wants to express themselves by getting dressed up for the painting and fabric choices might inform final colours in the painting.
In the unlikely event on completion of the painting that the client is not happy having seen the digital preview they can opt out of the purchase.

FRAMING:
The finished painting will be on board and ready for framing. For an additional £30 I can make a simple deep edged wooden frame in either black or white. If you want something more elaborate your local picture framer will be able to assist.
