Watercolor Portrait Process

Below is a list of how the process will work and gives samples of minimal revisions VS costly revisions.

We paint your image directly from a photograph that you have submitted. We do not deviate much from the photograph, so make sure it is an nice clear image you truly love.

  • After you check the status of our Commissions Timeline on the product page, we will require you to fill out the form.
  • Send clear high resolution pictures of yourself or a loved one through the uploader on the product page.
  • Pay for your portrait. We will begin your portrait once payment is received.
  • Since we paint from a photo, there really isn’t much of a “rough sketch” stage. We paint what you give us in the style samples provided on our Watercolor Portrait page.
  • When your portrait is complete, a low res proof will be sent for your approval and adjustments if necessary. You will get THREE proof revisions during the proof process, more than that will be an additional cost of $10 per proof revision. Please note, we will not deviate from the photo you provided by adding additional elements that are not already there.
  • Once your portrait is approved, a high resolution, digital portrait of your loved one in png or jpg format (similar to the style samples provided) will be linked for you to download from our cloud.

It takes several hours to days to complete a portrait and we want you to be happy with your purchase, however in order to keep our prices low we limit the amount of time spent on these lower priced portraits.

Samples of what we consider minimal changes after the polished stage include, but are not limited to:

  • Color changes.
  • Adjusting the subject on the page either up, down, left, right, or cropping.
  • *SOME Facial feature adjustments.
  • Removal of simplistic background to be white.
  • Adding a color wash to the background.

Samples of large changes that could incur additional costs, but are not limited to:

  • Adding a detailed background. Typically our watercolor portraits come without a background, or a minimal simplistic background in order to make the subject the main focus of the digital painting. Adding additional details to the background will likely be an additional cost. It is always best to ask.
