Cody specializes in both corporate and family portraiture, aiming to capture not only the likeness but the personality of the subject. A variety of options and price points are available, see some examples below. Contact Cody for more information and/or a customized quote.
Commissioning a charcoal drawing is a great, economical way to capture the personality of a loved one. The portrait is completed on toned paper using both dark and light value charcoal. Charcoal drawings typically portray the subject from the shoulders up and range from 11x14-16x20 in size.
An Oil vignette is a full color oil sketch of the subject. It typically portrays the subject from the shoulders up and is a looser interpretation. The painting is completed on linen and ranges from 11x14-16x20 in size.
Finished Studio Portrait
The studio portrait is a fully rendered, multi-layered approach that results in a more polished painting. This option is ideal for those looking for a larger, multi-subject painting or those wanting a piece with background detail.
