Upon the first visit Mr. Askew discusses the subject of study with the client.   The artist and client look through his reference portfolio of portraits and photos for style, position and composition and discuss that which  best suits the subject. 

Mr. Askew then produces “idea sketches" for composition and poses. Once the desired pose is selected, A photo session is held with the subject in order to capture expression, physical characteristics, texture, light and hue. 

The weeks following, Mr. Askew shares with the client detailed sketches of poses and expressions until the final selection is made.

After the client approves the composition, Mr. Askew then paints a sample study. This small study shows the client the over all look that the completed painting will have.  After the sample study presentation has been approved Mr. Askew begins creating the painting.
