How to Commission a Portrait

Commissioning a portrait painting or a portrait drawing from Jaq starts with a discussion as to what you would like for your portrait.
Portraits are available in many mediums… oil paint, charcoal drawing, watercolour.
Jaq also does portrait sculptures in bronze and relief portrait sculptures by commission.
There are a few options to consider:
Is it a corporate portrait, a family portrait or a more personal portrait?
What size are you after in your portrait?
What would you like included in your portrait…full body, only head and shoulders…any props…etc.
Discussing what will make the most beautiful portrait for your needs is a gratifying process. If you’re uncertain at the start then going through the design stage will easily clarify what will be perfect for you.
Portraits can be done from sittings, from photos, or from a mix. If photos are used Jaq requires that she take the pictures herself (unless that is not possible for some reason).
Jaq can travel to other areas of Australia, and internationally for any commissions.
A 50% deposit is required at the commencement of the commission.
