PROCEDURE

The collaborative process begins with an initial meeting at Raymond's New York City studio or the client's preferred location. The overall concept of the portrait will be discussed as the artist and the sitter become acquainted. Important details such as the size of the portrait, the degree of formality, the background, the pose and clothing are determined. Raymond enjoys this opportunity to get to know the client and learn about their background.

The second session is a photo shoot of approximately two hours. While painting the portrait, Raymond works primarily from the reference photographs he shoots at this session. This sitting can take place at the artist's studio or at the subject's home, office or other location. In certain circumstances, where time or distance is a concern, the initial meeting and the photographic shoot can be combined.

The artist selects the photographs to be used as reference photos and submits them to the client for comments. Mr. Olivere and the client discuss the choices either by phone or in person. Upon approval of the final choice, Raymond proceeds with the portrait.

When the portrait is finished, it will be presented to the client for approval. The time required for the process of the portrait painting varies, depending on the artist's schedule and the client's schedule. Raymond and his manager, Kathryn Wakefield, work with you to make the process pleasant and proceed smoothly.

Raymond will paint posthumous portraits if appropriate photographs and reference materials are available.
