Nowadays, its very easy to get a portrait made of your self, or your family, or your pet.

In the old days, traditionally, you needed to sit many times in front of the artist, to get a painting made. This is still probably the best way to do it, however its very time consuming and also very expensive!

Good on you if you have the time for all the many trips to an artist’s studio… it will be fun, but it’s not so practical nowadays! However, portrait paintings are still a very desirable thing to have: a great piece of art that can be treasured for ever, and it is highly personal also.

Most busy professionals, and corporate companies, are now chosing portraits of themsleves or their staff to be comissioned by a reputable artist, from a photograph of the client or clients.

One group of artists which are very experienced in this, are the artists at Portrait Xpress . (The information and entertainment on this blog is actually written by a staff member at Portrait Xpress, so we are biased !- there are other companies or private artists also, so please shop around! But we are sure that you will not find another company which has such good quality or service or a better price).

See here and click PAINTING SAMPLES/GALLERY (the button on the left) for  some of the artist’s past works.

See here for a fuller explanation of how to order, using just your digital image.

And see here for an explanation of different customisations which can be made to the painting, or different styles you may like to have the portrait painted in.

We hope you will pass this information on to anyone who may be interested in a Portrait Painting!

Have a great day.
