Oil Portraits make for the most attractive home decorations and wall art while showcasing your family and loved ones! You can request any size. Generally I paint my canvas on an 11 by 14 or 12 by 15. Oval canvas on a 16 by 20 really preserve a traditional look as well. Canvas is ready to hang!
Prices will range on the complexity of the painting and size ($149 and up) I generally paint in a wet on wet approach which allows for a better 3 dimensional feel that leads the eye gracefully. John Singer Sargent was well known for this "alla prima" style. The process is considered to be similar to how a sculptor works where form is created before the details and therefore adds to a more substantial portrait with more realism.
Clear photos showing the entire subjects head and shoulders (this includes pets) are recommended. It is usually more appealing and defining when the subject is at an angle with some shadow to define the features. It is also best if the subject has been taken at their natural look. They can be wearing something that best describes their favorite sport or personality. Email all inquiries to email@example.com
