Penelope undertakes commissions for portraits either at her studio in Catus, near Cahors or at a location proposed by the sitter.
The commissioning process is simple: Once the size and setting of the portrait are agreed, one initial sitting is needed of about two hours. Time will be taken to consider the setting, the light and the comfort of the sitter. I will sketch and take photographs. The picture will be started in the studio and a second sitting will be organised at the your convenience. The amount of sittings varies according to the size of the picture but for small works two sittings will usually be adequate.
Once the circumstances of the portrait are agreed a down payment of one third the price is requested; the final instalment is paid on completion.
Prices start at 380€ for a drawing,
500€- 700€ for a small format oil or pastel : max : 40x33 cm.
700€ upwards for a larger work, portrait or scene.
