A Portrait Commission in Liverpool
A portrait commission in Liverpool is one of the most personal and enduring gifts you can give on a loved one. It is a gift people rarely consider. They are focused on marking a special event with commercial products yet a portrait, including framing, is less expensive than a piece of low to moderate priced jewellery. A portrait makes a very impressive gift that will be treasured for generations. A wedding portrait will grace the walls of your home from your first apartment to your family home and go with you to your retirement condo. If you have been married for years but still wish you had a beautiful portrait, bring me your wedding photos and I can recapture that day in oils or acrylic.
A portrait does not require the subject to sit for hours in my studio. That is why in Liverpool, a portrait commission for a wedding can be done long after the fact. That makes it possible to capture an infant at the moment of baptism or toddler siblings at play. It is good to meet with the subject and make notes regarding skin tone and bone structure but a portrait from a photo will be just as impressive and does not require much time from the subject. An adult child with loving parents would cherish a portrait of his or her parents that could be passed down to the next generation.
People often think of a portrait commission in Liverpool as a formal portrait, even a bit stiff. It doesn’t have to be. If your want your wedding portrait to be the photo from your honeymoon in Tahiti at sunset, you can have it. Actually, a portrait painted from a spontaneous photo may do more to capture the joy felt by the subject. The important part of a portrait commission is to capture the essence of the individual, regardless of the setting. Call and schedule an appointment to discuss a portrait commission. Whether it is for yourself, a loved one or a family portrait it will likely be, of all the gifts received, the favourite.
