Portrait Commissions in Liverpool Capture the Essence of the Subject
Portrait commissions in Liverpool that are true works of art cannot be achieved with a camera. There is a place in portraiture for photography and today’s cameras capture images with all the clarity and realism that modern technology has achieved. The camera captures the image but the artist’s brush captures what the camera can’t see. That is the personality and the many moods of the subject. The artist has the freedom to capture those unique qualities through the use of colour. A portrait is not just a likeness. The personality of the portrait sitter can be filled out as the many aspects reveal themselves during the course of the sitting. The artist uses those cumulative insights to warm the subject and reflect a life being lived.
Not every great artist is a great portrait artist. The ability to capture the essence of the subject in Liverpool portrait commissions is a specific gift, within the gift. Rob Hefferan is just such a gifted portraiture artist. Portraits usually focus on the face and the story told by that face is brought out by the artist. However, Rob Hefferan is also a figurative artist that allows the face and the body to tell the story. It’s a body in motion even though still. Rob is highly imaginative with backgrounds and they set the scene. The backdrop may be real or imagined but it has a role in the storytelling process. Rob’s portraiture collection is inspiring in its depth. Commission a portrait of your loved one and it will be treasured for generations.
