Approval of the sketch.

If necessary, I go to the customer's home, office, to discuss additional details. I make sketches and photos to collect material - interior, landscape, furnishings that can be included in the composition.
First, I sketch a future painting. At this stage, the customer sees the composition, the placement of various details and objects in the canvas space. The size, tonality and color are specified. Then I paint a picture in my studio. At the request of the customer, I take a photo of the stages of the portrait and provide it after the end of the work.
When choosing the size of a portrait, I always explain:
For example, you order a size 50/40 cm - this is an image, canvas size. The baguette decoration increases its perimeter depending on the width of the baguette. With a baguette width of 10 cm, the dimensions of the decorated portrait will be 70/60 cm. This is especially important if the picture is placed in a limited space.

Baguette for pictures

Choosing a beautiful baguette that fits both the image and the interior. A large selection of baguettes of different styles allows you to fit a portrait into any modern or classic interior. I will help in the design of a portrait in a baguette workshop.

When you know in which interior the portrait will be placed, we select a baguette that is in harmony with both the portrait and the interior.
Questions to answer when choosing a baguette.
1. What is the interior style?
Classic, modern, modern, eclectic, art deco, loft and etc.
2. What kind of decoration, furnishings, decor? Gold, silver, bronze, wood grain, what color preferred?
3. Baguette width? 10 cm or wider, 7 - 9 cm, 4 - 6 cm.
4. What is the profile of the baguette? Stucco, sleek, modern pattern.
5. What material is the baguette made of? Wood, plastic.
6. Preferred baguette frame price.
I myself can arrange a portrait in a frame myself, taking into account all your wishes in style, color and cost. I will select several options for a baguette. The price of a baguette frame depends on the country of the manufacturer, material - plastic or wood, width, stucco molding, manual or machine gilding.

For example, the cost of a frame for a portrait 50/40 cm starts from $ 80. Pastel portraits are made in frames and under glass. At the request of the customer: a metal plate with engraving, paperwork for export abroad.
