Lucy McTier and Jace McTier
Step One: Appointment
We will need to set up a time and place to come and take photographs. Jace and I do our own photography, both to get to know
the subject and to artistically see through the lens what we want to paint. We can also paint from your photographs.
Step Two: Commitment
One half of the total commission is required up front. The balance is due upon delivery and your satisfaction.
Step Three: Photography
Jace and I take our own photographs to explore several different ideas or backgrounds. Your painting should say something
about your lifestyle; you have the freedom to use a beach scene, garden, lakeside, athletic event, woodland area, or infinite other
possibilities. We paint many different types of portraits:
Corporate portraits are vibrant and unique when natural lighting is used; compositions near a window or “on site” give a sense of
Bridal portraits are unique and a treasure for the mother of the bride or as a gift to the couple.
Children’s portraits are full of color, light and character with an emphasis on the childlike luminosity of youth.
Athletic portraits are exciting because we are able to successfully portray action and detail.
Equestrian or Animal portraits can enliven the painting of anyone who loves them. We have both painted horses in action for
Step Four: Choice
We then return home, evaluate the photos and send the finest examples for your consideration. Once you have chosen your
favorite composition, return the photographs and Jace or I will begin as soon as possible. Each portrait is finished in the order
that we are commissioned, and your waiting period is dependent upon a waiting list, usually from six months or more.
Step Five: Delivery
We will call you when your portrait is ready, and you may then set up a time to receive the painting at my studio, at your home, or
arrange for shipping. The painting will be delivered unframed, as most of our clients prefer to work with their own galleries or
framing centers to complement their décor. When you commission an original by Jace or Lucy, you receive an original oil painted
singularly by the artist you commission.
