34 imagesI create these digital media paintings using an electronic drawing tablet and custom made brushes that accentuate my personal style of painting. I use reference photos from either my own collection of images, or from "found" images from the public domain. When the work is completed I can then output it onto your choice of substrate such as fine art paper, canvas, canvas wrap, metal, ect. They are all available to purchase as signed limited edition fine art prints which I personally print myself in my home studio. After I have created the giclee print I finish the piece by painting at least one, sometimes two coats of a clear gel acrylic medium. This adds a rich brushed on texture and deepens and enhances the colors while protecting the painting from being damaged.
25 imagesI create these digital media portraits of people or pets from either one of my own photographs that I shot for my client, or one from a client who has their own photo they want painted. When the work is completed I can then output it onto your choice of substrate such as fine art paper, canvas, canvas wrap, metal, ect. Commission a Painting To commission a painting based on your own photograph of pet, family member, or group of family members, please contact me: Phone: 1-800-439-2795; from the Contact page of this website; or email your photo to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will need a well composed, sharply focused photo in jpeg or tiff format, and at a file size of no smaller than 1 megabyte, and no larger than 10 megabytes. This is a collaboration between you the photographer, and myself as the artist - a great painting starts with a great reference photo. I suggest looking through my samples here on this website to get an idea of what kinds of shots work the best for a great photo - painting. How I Price Your Photo - Painting: Pricing of my photo - paintings start at $195 for a single person or pet set against a simple custom painted background which I create to compliment and emphasize the subject. These are size limited (any size you desire up to 16x20 with a 1/2 inch white border to accommodate matting and framing) and output onto museum grade fine art paper. Larger sizes on museum grade paper or stretched canvas are also available at additional cost upon request. Other variable factors can raise your total cost such as: add $50 for each additional person or pet in the painting; additional creative fees of $20 to $40 will be added for personal requests such as: a detailed background shown in the reference photo, added objects or text, ect.
