An oil portrait requires a particular creation process; generally, when possible, a first meeting aimed to project a Portrait lasts one to two hours.
The subject (s) will have the opportunity to discuss the pose and the best outfit to be worn for the painting evaluating its size as well as where it will be hung. A photo shoot performed by the artist will cover a wide range of poses and different light. It is also possible to create the Portrait on the basis of photographs already in possession of the subject; this is often a must if you want to donate a "surprise" portrait or if the subject is no longer present.
Once the elements of the Portrait have been agreed with you, the Master will carry out a study aimed to drawing up the portrait, paying the utmost attention to detail; from the pose to the clothes, from the foreground to the background.
Delivery time vary according to the type of portrait as well as the standing waiting list at the time of your commission. However, please note that normally an oil portrait of medium proportions is painted in about a month. The painting will be completed with an elegant wooden frame in a choice of gilded or antiqued finish.
By commissioning your portrait directly to a professional artist you will have the guarantee of the authenticity of the painting.
