How to get a Portrait Painted
Email or post a good quality image of person to be portrayed
Make sure the image/photo shows clealy face details, eg; eye and hair colouring.
Yet do send images that you feel would make an interesting painting that would potentially suit the style of the artist eg; interesting atmosphere/lighting /mood that sums up a special moment that captures persons character , such as the image above of my son Oscar sketching and lost in thought.
I can help with this decision making by you sending me several images tht you like but can'r decide on [ l will give my guidence based on experience on which image would make a unique portrait].
