Irene feels comfortable working closely with her client throughout the portrait process. The portrait can be painted from a live sitting, a client's photo or photos Irene takes herself. After meeting the client and showing a portfolio of paintings, Irene discusses the client's wishes and ideas. If the client would like, Irene will take photos of the subject in different poses and expressions. After discussions with the client a composition is decided upon. At this point a 50% deposit is required and Irene will proceed to work on the portrait from photos, with possible sittings, or arrange a date for sittings to start. As the portrait progresses, Irene will invite input from the client, whether via e-mail images or the client coming to her studio. When the client is fully pleased, the portrait will be delivered and the balance paid. The client will always have the option of making minor corrections or changes to the portrait.
