Olena frequently accepts commission projects from portraits, figure to landscapes. The process typically begins with an initial consultation to evaluate the clients' needs. A series of small concept sketches begin the creative process. Once a direction has been agreed upon, references are gathered and more refined drawings and color studies are developed. After the client and artist agree upon the final vision, a mutual contract is drafted and a deposit is required. Depending on many factors including the complexity and current workflow, a commission often takes 3 to 6 months. Clients interested in discussing commissioned work are encouraged to CONTACT Olena to obtain a quote and to go over details/process.
