I studied cityscapes and nature for over 10 years and became a competent watercolorist, but portraiture was my first love as an artist, and I’m delighted to be working in that genre again. I have been creating portraits of friends and artists in my area. I am available for portrait commissions also. If possible I prefer to meet the subject in person to do a quick study before working from a photo. I also prefer to take the photo myself unless the provided photos are excellent quality. I can work solely from a photo if meeting the subject is not feasible. Provided photo should be 1000 px on the shortest side and show clear details of the features. Please contact me if you are unsure of the photo quality. ozakifineart@gmail.com I use Strathmore 400 series acid free medium surface 80 lb paper. Archival fixative will be applied to prevent smudging. However, it should be treated very carefully with minimum touch on the surface. Price: $300-1 person, $500- two people +5.5% sales tax. Please inquire for additional person/people/pet. A 50% non-refundable deposit is due upon commission. Available sizes: from 6"x9" to 18″x24″ Ownership of the Commissioned Work and all rights therein shall remain with the Artist if the Purchaser refuses to accept delivery. Commissioned Portrait is copyrighted in Artist’s name. Artist may use the image of the work for promotions.
