Carole Fadal


The portrait procedure begins with the artist traveling to the client’s location. The initial consultation includes the discussion of the setting, size, and medium, either oil or pastel, for the portrait. For clients located out of Waco, TX, Carole prefers at least one whole day to work with the subject. During this time she will photograph the subject, work on color sketches, review photographs, and discuss specific plans for the portrait. For clients located in Waco, TX, two to two and one half hours will be needed for photographing the client and discussing specific plans for the portrait

She then returns to her studio for the completion of the portrait. An approximate date of completion is given – usually two to four months after the portrait is started. Posthumous portraits can also be arranged dependent upon the quality of the available references.

Procedure for portraits of pets is the same.
