How It Works:

Step 1.  Email me a photograph 

 

Send your photo to crilll@comcast.net and let me know which type of portrait you would like done, oil or watercolor, and which size (all watercolors are 11" x 14"). I will contact you shortly and confirm the price and give you an approximation of how long the project will take to complete. 

Step 2.  Make an agreement

To keep things simple and painless our email correspondence shall serve as our contract. As long as we are clear about the price, the size, the deposit (non-refundable. *see below), and the time it will take to complete the painting we should be alright.   

 

Step 3.  Pay the 50% deposit

Once we have reached an agreement on the price, the size, and the time it will take to complete the painting you will need to pay a non-refundable 50% deposit. My preferred method for doing this is to use PayPal. Written checks will have to clear first before I can proceed with the project.

 

Step 4.  Be patient / Pay the balance

 

Once I have the deposit I will begin working on your painting. When I am about halfway done with the painting I will send you a picture of it so you will know that I am actually working on it. I hate showing a work in progress but I feel it's necessary to reassure my customers since they have made a deposit and will have to wait a couple months for the finished product to arrive. The painting will actually be finished a few weeks before I can ship it because the paint will need time to dry before I can apply a varnish. When the painting is finished, prior to varnishing, I will send another photograph for final approval. Once the painting is varnished and ready to ship you will pay the remaining 50% and I will ship it to you. That's it!

*DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE

Oil painting is a painstaking and time consuming endeavor. For this reason I'm unable to return deposits to my customers, even if they are dissatisfied with the finished painting. I can only promise to do my best work. If you are not completely satisfied with your painting we can discuss making changes - within reason - to make it look the way you would like. Whether you love or hate the finished painting I will not ship it to you until the balance is paid.
