Marta offers commissioned adult, children and animal portraits. Commissions can be with or without sitting as portraits can be accomplished from photographs. Several photos of the subject are required if there is no sitting. After selecting style, medium and budget of your portrait, a contract is signed and once the deposit is paid, work will commence.
You will be kept informed throughout the entire process and a second deposit is payable when the sketch layout is approved. Final payment is due when the work is finished.
Fees for portraits vary depending upon the medium chosen and the style and size of the artwork. Prices start from $100 for a simple head & shoulder study in CHARCOAL on A4 size paper, or $250 in PASTEL on A4 size pastel paper. A head to waist study in PASTEL on paper will start from $450 or from $800 in ACRYLIC/OIL on canvas. Fees for a full body study in ACRYLIC/OIL on canvas start from $3,000.
All estimates are for unframed work but framing can be arranged. These estimates are based on a single figure portrait with a simple background. If additional figures are to be included (for example a couple or family portrait) or detailed background and clothing is required, the fees will be negotiated before commencing.
