The painted portraits here are of some of my commissioned work. I work from life and photographic reference. To commission a portrait only using photographs, I normally ask for a few good quality photos of the person. Sometimes this is the only option if the portrait is going to be a surprise. I can also create a beautiful portrait from an old black and white photo. Each commission is a unique and special process from first contact to delivery of your portrait. I keep you informed every step of the way while work is in progress.
