I am happy to take commissions as time allows. I prefer to study the actual location but will take reference photos. I require 50% to begin the project. I provide a preliminary conceptual sketch and color study. Once these small works are agreed upon I begin the actual painting. Balance is due upon completion. If the concept changes after the initial price quote, a change in price is possible.
For example, one commission at first was to be a simple cottage along a shore. Then I was asked to add three boats. Later, three children, later the family dog. It became quite complicated but the client refused to recognize the additional work and did not agree to a price increase.
