THE PROCESS

Commissioning a Portrait with Hazel

  • We discuss your requirements over a phone or video call (approx 5-10 minutes)
  • You send us good quality photos as reference material – preferably natural light
  • Live sittings are optional at Hazel’s studio or at your home if you prefer
  • We give you an exact quote, and then take a deposit (balance due on completion)
  • Portraits usually take around 6 weeks to complete
  • Video / photos are sent regularly to ensure we exceed your expectations
  • You can have calls with Hazel at any time during the process
  • You can feedback on any adjustments such skin / hair color
  • Super high res photos and video sent of final portrait for you to sign off
  • Final payment is made only when you are ecstatically happy
  • The portrait is shipped by courier to your home after the painting has dried
  • Tissues are provided for emotional reactions to the portrait (tears of joy are not unusual!)
  • You love the painting so much that you order another to hang elsewhere 🙂
  • Hazel can even do an exact copy of the painting to hang in a 2nd home
