Full payment is required once it has been agreed to commence the portrait. However, you may choose to pay by three installments via PayPal.
A 7 day cooling off period will begin from the date of receiving either the full payment or first installment should you change your mind about the portrait.
The portrait will not be started until payment or first installment is received and seven days have passed.
Once the portrait has begun there will be a cancellation fee of £100 should you then change your mind.
