The Planning Meeting

A meeting is scheduled between the portrait patron and/or the subject of the portrait and me. This meeting may be in the home or office of the subject or in the Legacy studio.

The meeting is to explore the objective the portrait. Is the purpose to create a tribute to subject? Is it to be a gift?

Discussion will include what style of portrait is desired; formal, casual, wardrobe, what setting, size, environment where it will be hung and many other considerations. Together we study other samples of my portraits, other examples and agree on the concept of the painting.

Budget and schedule for delivery of final portrait is agreed upon. A written agreement is drafted to confirm all the details including all the steps to achieve the final best result.
