Portrait painting is a genre of painting. A well done portrait painting by a professional is not just to capture all the detail of the face, the contours etc, for a realistic outcome, but to capture the inner feeling at the time, the inner emotion, the energy within the piece. The Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC) once said of portrait painting:
"The aim of Art is to present not the outward appearance of things, but their inner significance; for this, not the external manner and detail, constitutes true reality".
Aristotle went to Plato's academy in Athens at the age of 18 (which was the first higher learning seat in the western world) whom taught Aristotle whom was taught by Socrates and Aristotle taught Alexander the great.
Here at Love Custom Art you can commission your own portrait painting from a sentimental photo and be in charge of the process and the outcome all the way from the start to the finish.
You send your photo, either upload or via e-mail which will be reviewed by professionals and then will advise the best way to move on with your portrait painting - drawing, whichever the case may be.
You chose a medium to go with and the photo editors will start the editing process Taylor made to your design e.g. removing a figure from the picture or imposing one, changing the background from another photo and so on to enhance the outcome of your portrait painting.
Then the edited photo will be attached to an e-mail and sent to you to either approve (if it meets your ambitions) or to make alterations until you are overjoyed with the results.
Once we have your approval on the edited photo it is then sent to an Artist to start the first proof. The Artist first sketches the outline in pencil and then starts to fill in the colours of your portrait painting.
Then the same process over – your approval or make alterations until you are overwhelmed with the results of your own personal portrait painting.
