The portrait begins with a discussion between the artist and the client at either the client’s location the artist’s studio or by telephone. During this time, the mood, setting, size, and price of the portrait is discussed or even decided on.
Kenneth then holds one and possibly two photographic sessions of about one and a half to two hours. The artist then chooses with the client several photographs that they feel will work best. Next a sketch is presented to the client for likeness and approval. If approved the artist proceeds with the finished portrait. All reference photos can be bought and factored into final negotiated price as well.
