THE COMMISSION OIL PAINTING PROCESS

How I, as the artist, help my client in making decisions for a commission oil painting: The customer has a desire for me to capture a land/seascape scene that they really like because of fond memories, special event, where they live or work (Dude Ranches, Golf Clubs, Resorts, Wilderness areas, etc.). They have a particular location in mind and I can help them choose from what perspective should be located for the painting. This has to do with the conditions; weather, time of day, and the time of year. Based on the particular time of the day, I will make suggestions in regards to having strong value (light and shadows), color schemes, proportions, focal point, etc. The size of the painting is up to the buyer, but I would suggest the shape of the painting based on the subject matter so that the composition is pleasing to the eye based on standard sizes and the “Golden Ratio” of composition.   OIL PAINTING COMMISSION WORK PROJECTS –

Overall Job

  • I photograph and sketch the landscape desired to be painted.
  • I show you the photos and rough sketch taken for you to point out what you want.
  • You decide on the size once the discussion of the price per/ square inch is established.
  • Half of the total payment is due before the painting is started.
  • I do the oil painting on primed hard board.
  •  When the painting is finished I scheduled a appointment with you for the unveiling. If you live out of town I email a digital photo.
  • You may choose a frame from our inventory for quality and a very reasonable price.

WHAT THE CUSTOMER WILL NEED TO DO.

  • Take me to the site to be painted and tell me what you want in the painting and the time of the time of day you want captured. I will photo the location and put the pictures in an order on my computer to present what I think you want to be painted.
  • Look at the photos I had taken and approve/change what I propose to paint from.
  • Tell me what size and shape that you want the painting and make the half down payment accordingly.

PAINTING COMPLETED When the painting is unveiled you can make suggestions if there is anything you want changed. I will make any changes until you are satisfied.  Once you tell me it is complete, you can pay the last half of the cost of the painting. If there is a desire for any reproductions we will discuss those options at this time.
