COMMISSION A CONTEMPORARY PORTRAIT
Marcus can paint your portrait from a photograph, from life, or a combination of both. Sittings from life take weeks and in some cases months so most people prefer to have portraits painted from photographs. In some instances, a photograph you provide may be suitable but usually, Marcus will organise a photography shoot with you to capture the perfect reference photograph for your portrait commission. During a detailed consultation to discuss commissioning your portrait painting, Marcus will explain his process and learn all about your vision for the portrait.
The time a portrait painting takes will depend on the complexity of the work but usually, you need to allow several months for your portrait painting to be completed.
The first step to commission a portrait is to schedule a call or meeting with Marcus.
