Price & Procedure

General Commissions

A longer more “finished” painting is completed over a several sittings and typically features a figure(s)* within a scene or environment or a landscape without a figure at all. A sitting typically takes three to five hours at the start of the portrait, and then a possible three to five hours sitting at the end of the finished portrait. Painting from life is a preferred method, as it will depict a more genuine drawing and original quality that is not replicated with the flattening quality of a photograph.

If time, distance or other factors conflict, photo reference remains a magnificent mode for a final composition. The final painting is usually completed within three months after the start date. Upon completion it is reviewed by the client and delivered. Final payment is made at this time including any travel and or shipping expenses.


"Carl creates a comfortable space between the sitter and himself, which allows for true human moments to be captured."
