Today, many people question the need for the art of portrait painting. With the rise of the cellphone, people were quick to predict the end of this art form. However, the allure of portrait painting remains as strong as ever. Though photographs capture the likeness of a person faithfully, they fail to provide the warmth and character that a painting does. The skill, intelligence and talent of the painter lies in showcasing aspects of the subject in a way that a photograph never can.
Historically, many families make it a family tradition to commission a portrait in Sheffield to mark important junctures. Parents may want to capture a stage in their children’s lives, or children may want to memorialise a milestone anniversary in their parents’ lives. A group of friends may want to celebrate a special event of one of their group, or a company may wish to honour a retiring employee. Whatever the reason, a painting makes more of an impact than any other form. It may be large or small, full length or bust. Contact the artist directly if you want to commission a portrait. Rob Hefferan will create a timeless masterpiece for you that will certainly increase in value over the years.
