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.
