Custom Portraits

Custom Portraits

Portrait commissions are favorite!! Working with clients on custom pieces is so rewarding. This portrait ‘Elizabeth’ was a joy to paint— my Client and I started corresponding though email to begin designing her portrait. Elizabeth sent me a few ‘Long Neck Lady’ paintings of mine to use as a guide, as well as a photo of herself for me to reference while painting.

We selected her color palette, earring style and planned to adorn her portrait with a flower crown. Once I had Elizabeth’s specifics I began creating her painting... I started by cutting and assembling wood for the handmade wood-panel. After the wood-panel was sanded, I began sketching out the portrait, mixed paint colors and painted in the first layer of the portrait.

After a few more days of painting, ‘Elizabeth’ was complete! I sent my Client a ‘sneak-peek’ photo package and to my delight, she loves her portrait! With that great response, I safely packaged Elizabeth’s custom piece and ship it to her new home.
