Every portrait begins with an image. Lauren often does pre-portrait photo shoots for her clients, but if you have an image in mind that is OK too! Images must be well lit with enough detail. Lauren will work with you to find the right image.
Select a medium. Lauren paints in acrylic, watercolor, and oil. Her most popular portraits are oils as they are the most photo-realistic and largest. However each medium has its own unique qualities and Lauren can help you find the right one for your piece.
Select a size. Paintings come in all shapes and sizes, and Lauren can help you find a size that matches your desired range and budget. Think about where your painting will live; will it be a small treasure or a grand statement piece?
Once you work with Lauren on a medium and size and arrive at a price, she will begin to work on your piece with a 50% deposit. Upon completion Lauren will arrange shipping (not included in price) and framing if desired.
