Fine Art Portraits
There’s nothing like a portrait that captures a loved one, young or old, a wonderful pet that is an important family member, a child at a special stage of life – and even flowers or a house
captured in fine art for all time
An oil painting on canvas may take from 4 to 6 or 8 weeks, depending on size and complexity.
This is primarily due to drying time.
Here’s how it works:
Initial consultation with Esa (can be done in person or by email)
Selection of photo – no “sittings” needed
Esa can do a photo shoot for the portrait pic. Price is $60 per hour for the shoot.
Sketch of image – individual(s), pet(s), house, floral, etc.
Oil painting – in 3 to 4 stages/layers (with drying time between each)
Final drying – then finishing
These are general, and prices may vary slightly depending on the project with additional charges for a second or additional subjects (pets and/or persons).
