One of the latest completed oil portraits from a photo.
We are very pleased with the result and happy to display the painting in our website.

Our specialised oil portrait artists will turn your picture into hand painted portraits. The full process from start to finish can be viewed here: https://www.lovecustomart.com/how-the-process-works.php

An oil painting will start out with the outline done in pencil to get the portrait started. The artist will fill in the first layers of oil paint, on which many more layers will follow – all the way to the layers that will give the painting the final touches and fine details. Using the photo as guide, our artists will capture the photo as detailed as possible. Bringing life to the portraits is what our artists can do best!

Love Custom Art creates colorful watercolor paintings from people, houses, landscapes – simply anything that is displayed on your photo. House paintings in watercolor are however very popular and we have specialised artists for this kind of medium. Your photo is turned into a hand painted watercolor portrait and you can receive it framed as well.

Watercolor even though  most popular for landscapes and houses can give beautiful results for people portraits as well, as you can see in these two samples our artists have created. If you are looking for a really artistic result that captures your photo and turns it into a cool artwork then watercolor may just be the right choice for you.

Watercolor portraits are painted in general on special art paper, colors are more subdued in comparision to oil or acrylic which are most vibrant of all mediums.

Making modifications in watercolor is not as easy compared with other mediums. Since watercolor is painted on paper we can not offer gallery wrap (stretched canvas) for it but framing in addition with paper inlay (a special paper border that sets apart the painting from the frame) can really give your painting the finishing touch!

If you choose watercolor for your painting you will receive (as for all other mediums) a proof before we ship anything! This way you can ask for changes and nothing will be shipped unless you have approved it! Allowing you to be fully involved in the creation of your painting is what we aim at mostly! In addition to ensure that you receive only the best quality and best service we do offer a guarantee in case you are unhappy with the result.
