portraits from photos
Updated: Dec 26, 2019
If you are looking to commission artist paintings / drawings portraits from photos from a professional artist with many years experience working from clients photos, take a look at the samples of my work of portraits from photos on my website to see if this is what you would like.
All portraits are painted or drawn by hand using traditional methods by myself in the UK using professional artist quality materials to give superior results.
You need a sharp clear photograph showing all details to be copied to your portrait drawing or painting from a photo.
This is because i need to see the detail clearly to draw. If it is unclear or fuzzy etc., i wont be able to see it properly and then wont be able to create a good likeness for you. The rule of thumb is "the better the photograph the better the portrait" from photo so it matters a lot to achieve good, professional artwork for your artist portrait in oil pastel or pencil.
all artist oil paintings by hand painted on good quality stretched cotton canvas. b&w pencil hand drawn portraits are created on a textured paper and drawn with black art conte pencil for a detailed finish with a textured look. pastel portraits have a velvet finish and are excellent for getting good blending in portrait shadows and skin. great attention is paid to getting a good likeness to the photo and bringing out the personality and character of the subject. why not visit the website today and order your portraits from photos today.
