Our expert artists can recreate any likeness – from a CEO of a major corporation, to a daughter turning sweet 16, to a loving household pet. Using only the finest materials, the portrait may be done in your choice of oil paint, acryillic, watercolor, charcoal or a lovlely pencil sketch. Most importantly, you play an important role during the process of the portrait.
The process begins when you come to the gallery (or arrange for us to come to your office/home) review our artists’ work. After selecting the artist, medium (oil, pencil, etc) and desired size of the portrait, you will then choose a series of varied photographs – either from your personal collection, or we can arrange a photo seating. The artist will then begin the portrait.
When the work is almost half completed, you will be asked to return to the gallery (or we will arrange another meeting in your office/home) for a second meeting with the artist, and to survey the portrait thus far. It is at this point that you will critique the piece – any changes in coloring, expression, etc. will be made at your discretion. The portrait will be completed and framed only upon your approval.
