Jean Collins Portrait Painter



The portrait procedure begins with a discussion between the artist and the client as to the size, mood and background of the portrait. Where the painting will hang is also considered. The artist will work from life or from photographs. All portraits are done in oil on linen canvas.

A deposit of 30% of the agreed price is required to begin. Balance is due upon completion and client approval of the portrait.

When the portrait is completed a photo or digital image will be sent to the client for approval, and arrangements are made for delivery or shipping. Although framing is not included in the price, the artist will be glad to assist in frame selection.

Portrait fees are determined by the portion of the figure painted, the number of subjects in the painting, the complexity of the background, and the size of the canvas. For instance, a 16" x 20” head and shoulder portrait of a single adult or child starts at $2000.00. Animal portraits start at $900.00. Contact the artist for additional pricing information.

Please note that applicable taxes, framing, shipping, and travel costs are not included in the portrait fee.
