A portrait sometimes has to be created from photographs because it is not always possible to arrange sittings. These portraits are not mere copies but something deeper and more complex. For this you need an artist with special skills so finding the right artist is important.
If you are considering commissioning a portrait from reference material you will need a good quality photograph on which to base the portrait and as much additional material as you can muster such as photographs, videos or Skype calls.
The artist will also need to know the size, medium and completion date for the work before quoting.
Painting a portrait from photographs is a special skill so choosing the right artist is essential.
We recommend that you use our consultants who will approach a range of appropriate artists within your budget and assemble a portfolio for you to choose from.
