The price of a portrait depends on the size of the work, the number of subjects, and the complexity of the background. An oil portrait begins at $5,000, a graphite drawing $2,000. An oil sketch is $2,200.
An oil portrait typically requires from three to six months, a graphite drawing from two to three weeks.
The price of a copy of a work of fine art depends largely on the size and complexity of the work.
One-half the price is due upon the sketching and taking of photographs of the subject. The remainder is due only once the client is perfectly satisfied with the final work.
