Paintings and Fine Art

Commission a One-of-a-Kind Painted Portrait

The digitally painted portraits we create are not an imitation of art by processing a photo on a computer. It's a real hand made painting, stroke by stroke, using virtual brushes, palettes, and canvas. Every portrait is hand painted using a pen tablet and stylus. Preliminary editing is done in Adobe Photoshop and then the entire image is painted into a beautiful work of art using Corel Painter. Our paintings are printed on canvas and then further enhanced with brushstrokes using the finest gel mediums. All of this makes your painting a one-of-a-kind work of art, an exquisite, emotional and timeless treasure.

To begin your painted portrait, we offer a free pre-session consultation during which you can see samples of our work, get advise on how to prepare for the photo session, discuss choice of styles and outfits as well as have any questions answered.

The next step is to schedule your photography session. A non-refundable booking fee of $125 is due when you book your session in order to hold the date and time for you. We do not schedule any other appointments during your session. The booking fee will be applied in it's entirety towards your session fee. If circumstances arise and you need to reschedule your appointment, the booking fee will transfer to a new appointment if we are notified within 48 hours of the original appointment. After your session we will schedule a meeting to review your proofs and choose the image that will act as the sketch for your painting. At this meeting you will also choose the finished size of your portrait. A 50% deposit is due at this time.

A finished painting can take up to six to eight weeks or more to complete.

The "Fine Art" Session is $250 and includes:

- Studio Photography Session

- $125 credit toward your canvas

- One in-studio viewing session (During his meeting we will review your proofs and choose the image that will act as the sketch for your painting. At this meeting you will also choose the finished size of your portrait. A 50% deposit is due at this time.)

Elegance, style and true artistry are essential to fine art portraiture.
