Do you have to sit for a portrait? 
Only if you wish. Dr. Nichols provides clients a choice. He paints some of his classic portraits in these ways: 
(1) Some portraits are done from photos that you provide. The photos provide likeness of facial features but always need a full range of other elements that the artist brings to the painting himself.
.
(2) Sometimes Dr. Nichols' portraits are painted from photos that he takes himself. He will often photograph the person or group in a wide range of angles and positions to get the best possible likeness and variety of expressions.
.
(3) Then on some ocassions people prefer to be painted from a series of personal sittings at a special location or in his studio.
Each portrait is personalized as to the background, mood, style and position and clothing of the subjects. The photos are primarily used to provide facial expression and likeness to the portrait.
