Ardith Starostka PSA • CDA Fine Portraits & Paintings


Procedure & Fees

At the initial meeting, Ardith will discuss with the client the type of painting, mood, size and details such as clothing, setting, and pose. All portraits are priced after the individual requirements for the project are discussed. A 25% non-refundable deposit will be required upon contract signing.

Ardith will then travel to the client's location of choice (home, office, outdoor setting) and render sketches, a color study and also take reference photos.

The artist will then meet again with the client to show the selected photographs that will be used for the composition of the portrait. At this time, a completition date will be determined. Upon approval of the proposed portrait, an additional non-refundable 25% deposit will be required.

Fees begin at $2500 for a 16" x 20" head and shoulders pastel and $4800 for a 16" x 20" head and shoulders oil. Fees increase proportionally for half-figure, three quarter-figure and full-figure poses and may vary according to the complexity of the background. Fees do not include framing, applicable sales taxes, travel expenses and shipping costs, if needed.
