About My Oil Paintings From Photographs
One of the most well-known and in-demand painting styles, oil paintings offer rich texture and color that can turn an ordinary photograph into a true work of art. I use this technique to create stunningly realistic oil paintings from photographs, turning strangers and family members into fine works of art on canvas.
As a portrait artist, I use photographs of people and pets for use as reference material when creating oil paintings. It’s important to have quality reference material to work from when painting portraits, so I encourage all of my clients to send me clear, well-lit photos of themselves or their pet so that I can ensure your final product looks just like you want it to.
Creating an oil painting is a multi-step process that begins with taking photos of you or your pet for reference material. Then, I paint these photos roughly onto canvas, add shadows and adjust details before finally adding final paint on top to create a realistic image.
Throughout the process, it’s crucial that all steps are taken seriously in order to create a beautiful painting for you or your loved one. I invite you to browse through my online portfolio galleries to see some examples of oil paintings from picures I’ve done!
