Step 2: The artist will contact you and let you know when the painting will be competed by and confirm the price.  All you have to do is confirm that you’d like to go ahead.

Step 3: The artist will then send you photos once the painting is finished.  You can request for any changes to be made if you wish - there is no need to pay until you are completely happy with the finished artwork.
