If you're looking for something specific that is not a portrait, I'll let you know if it's something I think I can do well. Otherwise, I'll gladly refer you to an artist who specializes in that subject matter.
Looking to have a portrait painted?
When I paint portraits, I try to capture the energy the subject evokes through bold use of colours. It all boils down to the reference image, though, so a good photo is required.
Who or what in your life you would like to have painted? Yourself? Your spouse or child? Your parent or pet?
Whoever or whatever it is, I try to capture their character and energy in the portraits I paint.
How It Works
Step 1 - Communicating the details
Fill out the Inquiries form, below, or just email me: Steph@StephanieMcLeanArt.ca. Please include as much information as you can about the painting you have in mind: who the subject is in relation to you, what size portrait you're envisioning, etc... If you'd like a portrait of your pet, please indicate what animal it is. There is no obligation by inquiring, so you have nothing to lose! Here is my PRICE LIST.
Step 2 - Zoom Call
IF WE'VE NEVER MET IN PERSON
After receiving your inquiry, if you're interested in receiving a quote, I will reach out to schedule a Zoom call. Not in Canada or the U.S.? No worries. We’ll work around time zones. We’ll talk about what you'd love the painting to evoke, its size, colours, the subject, their hobbies and character, etc... I’ll use those details to create something special for you. During our conversation, I'll ask that you provide me with a great photo of the subject. (No fully black or white/overexposed areas, in focus, well lit, nice pose, etc. ) After this, I will provide you with a quote. Once you return the signed commission contract and email transfer me the downpayment, the painting begins!*
Step 3 - The Unveiling
Your painting is created just for you in my signature style. A reveal will be planned for you to approve or provide feedback to your painting at a point where I feel it's appropriate to do so. Once complete, your painting will be delivered or shipped to your home. You’ll have a beautiful piece of art that will help tell a story and elevate your art collection.
Please see the FAQ page for payment information, return policy and likenesses.
*You can also pay using PayPal. If I'm finishing up another painting or have a few commissions scheduled before yours, I will let you know and provide you with an estimated finish date.
