Portraits are done from customer supplied photos. These photos can be taken using most personal phones. Selfies are acceptable. Please try to keep the distance from the subject at three feet minimum and five feet maximum. Closer than three feet can cause unwanted distortion. Over five feet and there can be a loss of resolution. The quality of the photo is key to a good portrait.
Your phone usually can share a photo to an email address. Send photos to [email protected] with the subject line of Portraits. Please include your name, address and phone number in the body of the email. Both JPEG and PNG formatted images are acceptable.
You will get a reply that your photos have been received. I use photoshop to alter the photo if necessary. There may be some discussion between us on the final photo. This is expected and not a problem. Once the photo is approved by you, I will give you a start time for the drawing. Normally, from start to finish is about three to five hours depending on the complexity of the photo. If there are more than two subjects in the drawing, larger paper is needed and the cost increases. For example, a 11 by 14 inch drawing will start at $149.00.
Upon completion of the portrait, you will receive an email with a photo of the drawing for your approval. Feel free to make suggestions. Your opinion matters. The objectives for each portrait are an unmistakable likeness and a quality drawing. You will make the final decision. Once approved, you will be invoiced via PayPal and the portrait will be shipped.
All portrait images are subject to being included on Facebook posts and websites for GalbraithArts.com. The identity of a portrait subject will not be divulged. Please contact Harry Galbraith with any concerns about privacy.
