Commission A Portrait By Randal Huiskens
The Process

Main Page | The Process | Pricing | Portrait Gallery




The process begins with the patron submitting photos for consideration. Not all photos will make a good portrait painting. Therefore the artist (Randal Huiuskens) has discretion of whether he believes the photo can be used to make the portrait. The photo must meet specific requirements to be a satisfactory source for such a painting. Some of the considerations of whether a photo would be suitable usually have to do with lighting. People have sent me poorly lit photos with little definition. A suitable photo to be used must be of a reasonably high resolution. The photo should NOT be taken with flash photography - flash photography puts the light source squarely in front rather than falling from one side or the other, making the photo unsuitable for use. Artist retains the right of refusal if he does not feel the photo would make a satisfactory painting.

Once the photo has been decided on, the patron can choose the size of the canvas, and whether it will include "Easter Eggs". A video game "Easter Egg" is something hidden within a game. Put in by the creators of the game, Easter Eggs are an optional part of the game that must be found by extensive playing. Randal has adapted this concept to his paintings, hiding small images that relate to the subjects interests. The smallest canvas size is 16" x 20" and can range up to 30" x 40".

If Easter Eggs are to be included, a short list of the person's interests is submitted, and the artist will decide which interests and images are to be used. If specific images for Easter Eggs are requested, artist has to discretion as to whether they will work in the painting, and whether he will use them.

Once all is agreed to by both artist and patron, a 50% deposit is paid to Artist, either by credit card, Paypal or check.

The painting would be available for review within 90 days of receipt of deposit. Painting would be created at the artists' discretion, although one round of reasonable changes suggested by the client may be added to the finished painting at no extra cost. Artist has discretion as to what constitutes a "reasonable change." Upon completion, painting is shipped upon receipt of balance due.
