The Artist shall require at least three to five hours of posing to
produce studies and sketches to establish the concept and composition
of the painting. The artist will complete a comprehensive paint sketch
as the basis for the finished painting which will be shown to the
subject for final approval Subsequent sittings might be required,
though these may be waived if travel and/or time constraints prevail.
The Artist will use photographs where appropriate, to reduce the number
of sittings for the painting.
The Artist shall receive a non refundable 1/3 payment upon signing
of this agreement and then a second 1/3 payment of upon an approximate
75% completion of the portrait. The Subject will view the painting
at this juncture to allow for any modifications in the image However,
any fundamental changes as to the pose or the setting (as decided
upon in the final paint sketch) where extensive re-painting would
ensue, will require a 35% restructuring of the fee and a new agreement.
Final payment of the outstanding balances will be made upon the
approval and delivery of the painting.
The Artist shall retain all of the reproduction rights to the art,
but shall not reproduce the painting for commercial use (i.e. for
selling a product or other forms of commercial exploitation). However

clients. The Subject may reproduce the painting upon securing written
permission from the Artist.
