The minimum size is the head and shoulders, not less than 18 by 24 cm or 30 by 40 cm from 2 or 3 weeks, a couple of stages of work, and sometimes even in one stage ala prima. The maximum size is 120 cm by 80 cm, here it is possible in full growth or a more complex and large-scale composition.
Some information about my work and the materials that I usually use when paint a portrait for commission. I buy a finished canvas on a stretcher, make a light primer or pull it on a stretcher and make a primer, sometimes with an imprimatur. Like many of my colleagues, I start with a pencil sketch, emphasizing the basic proportions of a person’s figure and face. Then in several stages I paint with oil at intervals between stages for drying the oil it about 3-5 days. For example, the most classic Half-length oil portrait of 1 person, size 50 by 70 cm, takes 4-5 weeks in time. I use paints only expensive, cheap I never use, since it is not profitable and can harm the work process. If you like my work and you want a handmade painting only, I am ready for your task.
I will certainly consider your ideas and wishes in the forthcoming work. If necessary, some adjustment of the details of the future character, background it is possible. I can also add something, and change a little, etc.
