Exclusive fine art oil paintings 
Portraits from your cherished photos of people and pets by talented professional artist David Gilchrist.
With many years experience I am a master at producing a unique quality portrait from a picture you will love.
great results using finest grade artist materials that will last and give you an original portrait painting of stunning quality you will treasure in the years to come.
Traditional Oil Paintings have been  expensive because they take a long time to produce and can easily cost several hundreds of pounds, or more.
Traditional oils can take weeks to dry and may require several stages of painting ( each stage needs to dry before continuing ) to finish.
You need to sit for a portrait which takes time to set up and prepare.
Order direct from the artist and saveI use modern high grade artist quality griffin alkyd oil paints by winsor and newton that dry in days ( not weeks ) with less time between each stage, I can be more cost effective. 
Your painting is created in weeks, not months No time is wasted for a sitting  as I work direct from your photo
see also my dog portraits page for pet portrait ideas.
FOR BEST RESULTS

for  you

TO GET BEST RESULTS YOU NEED A GOOD CLEAR CLOSE-UP PHOTO FOR ME TO COPY THE DETAILS FROM
