Portrait Painting

A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer. Typically, portraits are drawn from photographs of the subject. I offer portraits in mediums such as: pencil, oil, acrylic, water color, charcoal, conte (a chalk-pastel type medium) and pastels.

Who needs it?

Portraits make a great personal gift, whether it’s of a family member or a precious pet. They can be done in black and white, or color. I can also have them framed for you if you like.

Portrait Pricing

You will need to contact me for pricing. I will need to know the size, medium desired, a photo of the subject, and description of the style of art you are seeking (realistic, abstract, etc.) I will give a free estimate for cost and time frame to complete the project. If you’re on a budget, I can work with you to create something that fits into your price range!
