They agreed to $300 for a portrait, they pay $300 for a portrait. The only way I could possibly see not paying full price is that either you were late with the work or screwed up somehow. "Too vibrant" is horseshit and you should have made them pay the full price or found a different buyer who would appreciate the effort and work involved.
What a shame! All work is deserving of fair payment, and the work that an artist does is so far beyond whaT most people do when they work. You asked a more than fair price. I hate to say it, but you may have to do like some have suggested - resort to contracts that stipulate the price and that the buyer does not get possession of the work until full payment has been made. Good luck, OP!!
