A couple months ago I was asked if I can recreate art. Yes, I can create reproductions of the masters on canvas. Here is a reproduction of Jean-Honore Fragonard’s “The Reader”. If it was painted before 1900, I would be happy to recreate paintings for you. Reproductions are not 100% and I don’t want them to be – I prefer to think of them as a re-creation of an incredible piece of art. This was a four feet tall reproduction and nearly life size.
Reproductions of the Master Painters
If you would like to see old art recreated for your home I would love to hear from you. I also do original commissions from photographs. I can paint from old or new photographs but prefer to have at least 2-3 photos for references. Email me at email@example.com.
Painting from a single photograph is not as easy as having some multiples to work with. This painting is still being worked on but is a great example of painting from a photograph. This is not a commission but rather practice with skin tones, hair and light from a model that worked with me earlier this year.
Nearly Finished Painting of Angela. I sometimes like to share incomplete work – you get to see how the paintings develop.
Commissioning a painting is simple. Take a look at the commission link to the right in the navigation links.
If you would like to commission a painting, I would love to hear from you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. I paint large and small portraits. I can paint portraits for movie sets based on actors in movies and I have a great turn around time.
A bridal painting is normally created from photographic references but can be painted from sittings. I have painted many commissioned portrait paintings and have a few private collectors of my art. I specialize in painting people, especially formal scenes. This painting is definitely one of my favorites and I have followed it up with a link to the time lapse of the painting. Thanks for visiting and I hope to paint for you one of these days.
Painting of a Bride (2012)
Here is the time lapse video of this painting. Digital painting has so many advantages. It is better for our environment, the final canvas made is also painted again – there are no differences in the final visual art but it still takes a lot of time to get right. Here is the big one though. This piece is fairly large – 24×30 on canvas and to afford an oil painting of this size would cost over $2000. That is the lowest price I have been able to find for oil paintings of my caliber. You can get this size painting from me for half that – not because it’s any ‘cheaper’ but because it took less storage, space, my tools were less expensive, my process cost less – but my final painting will last longer than oils will. My painting is more durable and higher quality. Here is a time lapse of this piece being created from a blank canvas to the final piece.
