Hazel accepts commissions for portraits in oil. She paints from life and portraits involve an average of four or five one hour sittings at her studio in central Bristol. Portraiture is a sensitive area, the artist’s perception and representation of the essence of the subject’s character and identity may not coincide with that of the client. Hazel is happy to undertake a portrait on the understanding that there is no obligation for the client to purchase the finished painting. A non refundable deposit of £50 to cover the cost of materials is required at the first sitting. The finished painting is available for sale at a cost of £500 unframed, with the initial deposit deducted.
