'The Prayer' 14" x 11" Charcoal and Conté on paper
by Joyce Fournier
As a member of the Portrait Society of America, I accept Portrait Commissions in Oil, Charcoal or Graphite.
I am happy to create your portrait from from live sittings at my studio in Toronto or from photographs should that be more convenient for you. I am equally comfortable with either method provided the photos are of high resolution and quality.
If you prefer, I am happy to suggest a composition and take my own photos from which to work.
Completion of the portrait may take from 1 to 6 months, depending on size, subject matter, medium, the client’s preferred style (impressionistic or realistic) and whether I am working from photos or from live sittings (live sittings and works in oil may take longer)
Once the portrait is completed I am happy to make adjustments as necessary. We then either meet for the final unveiling or, for clients living abroad, we correspond via e-mail and / or Skype with photos of the finished portrait for approval.
