In the many years as working as a Portrait artist I have painted many difficult requests some of these range from deceased children who have died soon after birth and had to paint them at age 9yrs of age to making subjects younger or even sprouting wings. When painting from photos I usually paint from several photos and arrange them in a family setting. Mock-ups give a client an idea of what they will get.

I always prefer to paint from a live model in my studio but as many of my subjects are deceased this cannot always be achieved. Even children cannot sit still long enough for a painting and so must rely on photos.
When clients are having trouble taking that special photo they can visit my studio and allow me to organise the backdrop,setting and take the photos. I then copy these photos onto a cd for them to take home and consider at their leisure before making the decision.

The best childrens or family portrait painter is important to commission as Memorable Portraits mark the milestones in a child's development from babies and children through to teenagers and adults.

Art for Sale of Best Quality Portrait Paintings - Custom Oil,Pastel Portraits
Personal wedding portraits commissions hold great meaning and are very memorable and sentimental. Although many of my portraits commissions are held in private collections many more have recieved awards for their appeal. Selecting the right setting for the portrait in the best light and capturing the greatest expression that typifies the subject is often impossible to do in photos. Often the portrait subject/subjects must sit for the artist to let the artist understand their nature and do many colour studies and sketches for the painting to be at its best. Then photos can then be used as a back stop for the collection of ideas and positions.All paintings are done in the highest professional quality materials and whether choosing oils,pastels or charcoal for the commission no painting will be sold unless the client is fully satisfied with the workmanship. So whether you are commissioning a picture for a wedding gift,corporate art,birthday, unique baby shower, family group,pet portrait or simply using it as a collectible or interior decorating idea to decorate your home you will have a portait to keep worthy of any gallery.
