Portraits on Order from Photography

Painter – Portrait Artist, I offer the creation of personalized portraits, made from photographs in oil painting.

 I particularly like oil painting because it allows me to create excellent quality works that defy time. Its deep colors do not alter over the years.

Oil painting is an attention that captures an emotion over time.

The choice of photo

To order a portrait from a photo, this first step is very important. Take the time to choose a beautiful photograph, the result of the portrait depends on the quality of the image. Plus the photo is pretty, and sharper, the more beautiful your portrait will be. After zooming the photo, the details must remain sharp.

The face must be clearly visible and of course the lighting must highlight the subject. If in doubt, do not hesitate to send several photos, I will help you choose the one that is best suited to take your portrait.

Once the photo(s) have been selected, all you have to do is tell me your personalization instructions. It can be a technique, oil in black & white, to paint the subject in Victorian costume, …… Everything is achievable, let your imagination speak.

The delivery time

Classic oil paint, black and white style, sepia = approximately 4 weeks to respect the drying time

Two-tone oil painting = approximately 2 weeks

Once your painting is finished, I will send you a photo of it by email, so you can confirm that it suits you, or tell me what changes you want.


You will be asked to pay 50% when ordering, then the balance upon delivery.
