yes you, look at me!

yes you, look at me!

many people ask me why do paintings or sketches of people or pets and not just a photo?

well, photos are great and Im an avid photographer (okay when i have the time) but I think there is something more unique about a painting. Also, sure we can manipulate photos a lot nowadays on photoshop, but a painting is done by hand so every one is unique- you cant beat that as a gift or as a personal memory to keep.

So, Im keen on promoting artwork!

In an ideal world, Im a traditionalist, so the person or pet should sit in front of the artist and the portrait be done over a few days or weeks. BUT, who has this time anymore? so, I think portrait paintings from photos are justified, as long as they are 100% done by hand with no printing or any cheating involved.

To be honest, using a reputable artist or company, the client also has some fun-

they can help tell the artist in what style to do the painting, they get a great painting even if their own artistic skills are not great, and they can request changes to the painting before its finished.

They can change the background or the contents of the painting- its so flexible!

Here is the original photo.
