Process for creating an Oil Painting

Notes from the artist: I can either work from high resolution, clear, detailed photographs that you have taken or, for an oil painting project I highly recommend scheduling a image consolation and photo-shoot with me. To create the perfect portrait, getting acquainted with the subject will allow me to capture personality and humanity within my brushstrokes, and give us the time to discuss your visual ideas and purpose

The next stage is to photograph the model/s under a variety of lighting conditions and in different poses. When I am satisfied that I have some strong material I can work with I will return to my studio to edit images and develop beautiful composition suggestions.


Once the final composition is client approved then painting process begins.
A final sitting from life may be required to make any tonal adjustments, the client is invited to view the painting towards the end and minor changes will happily be made. The finished Oil portrait should be ready in four to twelve months, this timing allows for drying and an application protective vanish to keep color vibrant.

The technique I apply is a combination of the styles executed by the old masters and dry brush technique, then finally layer upon layer of rich oil glazes is applied to achieve depth and vibrancy.

I may choose to incorporate your beautiful piece on my online art gallery if you prefer to keep your portrait private please notify me.

The creation of a unique work of art requires enthusiasm and diligence in craft and the final masterpiece will become a cherished heirloom.
