Artistic Portrait from Photo

The unique charm of a portrait painted or sketched from a photograph…

Whether it is a gift for a loved one or whether it adorns your home walls, a painted or sketched portrait has a unique charm, surpassing the photograph from which the artist creates the painting or sketch. Paintings and sketches have a strong visual impact on the observer and are always a pleasure to view. Unlike a still photo, paintings have a magic and allure of their own!

Paintings would be of oil on canvas or acrylic on canvas. In sketches the choice is between sketches drawn by pencil or by a piece of charcoal. Even though software tools have made an appearance, paintings and sketches drawn by professional artists are far superior due to the personal touch of the artist who seeks to capture the tiniest details. To make the subject come alive, artists take into account the stature, body language and even history. Some artists prefer to meet families in order to ask questions about the subject's looks, stock expression etc. The more questions they ask, the better the resemblance.

Go ahead and order a painting or sketch…

After details like size and price are finalized with the artist, you need to hand over one or more photographs all of which should be of good quality with face in focus and facial features clearly visible. A photo taken in natural light would be the best. The artist also would like to meet the family members to learn about the personality of the person whose portrait is to be created. After the painting is ready, it is handed over in framed or unframed condition.

If the artist is based in a city which is away from your location, you would have to email or courier the photograph. Thereafter the artist may interact with you and your family members over phone or via chat. In this case, the painting or sketch, after it is ready, is carefully rolled and placed in a rigid plastic tube, prior to despatch through courier.
