A majority of my portraits are made
using my own photographs (especially in the case of children's portraits). I will visit you and take a series of informal shots in various lights and settings, then editing these images down to 4 or 5 for you to choose a preferred likeness and pose. Its so important that the images used capture the subject the way YOU recognise and know them.
I paint on canvas or unframed gesso boards depending on your preferred look and whether you want a framed painting.
Paintings usually take a month to complete.
