Portrait Artist Chester

When it comes to the portrait of a loved one, anything less than perfection just won`t do. All of my paintings are created one stroke at at a time. Don`t confuse these with the cheap, photo-manipulated, canvas prints that are seen on the internet. These are real paintings. Duplicate Originals can be done for 1/2 of the cost of the first original. Once an original is created I digitize it and archive the image so you can have as many fine art reproductions as you like. You will have the peace of mind in knowing that if your painting is ever lost or damaged it can be replaced very reasonably. I work from color photographs that I can take or you can email or mail to me. Family portraits Chester/ Cheshire/North west/London in order to qualify for standard pricing, photographs must be at least 3” x 5” for prints or 640 x 480 pixels for digital format such as jpeg (the larger the image the better). They should be in focus and show reasonable detail. I can also create a portrait based upon a Black & White photo as the reference, additional charges will apply on a case by case basis because it requires a lot more communication and work to get the colors just right. Portraits that involve highly detailed backgrounds or other features, such as scenery may incur additional cost. This will be discussed and agreed upon prior to commencement of work. Once you have made your decision on the size and number of subjects, we will discuss what you want. I’ll email an initial composition to you for your approval and can send you periodic images for your input and suggestions. I will make the requested changes until you are totally satisfied. You will never get an unhappy surprise. You will know exactly what you are getting before you pay for it. If you are not pleased with the finished painting you will owe me nothing, painting then becomes the sole property of the artist. Prices include shipping the completed painting rolled in a protective tube, you then take it to your local framer for stretching and framing. If you like I can stretch and mount the canvas for a small extra charge in time, materials and shipping. Custom framing is available for an additional charge, there are many options for packing and shipping a framed painting and we can discuss those options on an individual basis.

Portrait Artist Chester Testimonials

“The portrait you produced exceeds our expectations, especially given the price, which was extremely reasonable. I`m also really grateful for the endless patience you`ve shown in trying to make this portrait as true to life as possible. You were not kidding when you said you would fine-tune as much as humanly possible to meet your customer`s expectations. I know you have spent many hours making sure that all the details were done just right and that is greatly appreciated. I plan to work with you again on another project and will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends and associates”

“Now I can look at my dear little kitties anytime I want, I can`t begin to describe how much joy the painting you did of them brings me. Bless you for taking the time to get it right.”

“The painting is hanging in our living room and it was the hit of the party last night! We had about 20 guests over and between talking about your painting and showing people your website you should be hiring us to promote your work. I`m not kidding. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job, we`ve already got something else in mind.”

Fine Art & Portraiture Artist Chester

Send me a favorite photo of your pet and I`ll create an original oil on canvas painting that will be your most treasured possession. I love to paint animals, especially peoples pets. My greatest reward is the reaction I get from a client when they see the completed painting of their beloved dog, cat, horse or any other pet. I also do portraits of people and commissioned paintings and drawings of homes, collector automobiles, yachts and any other significant place or possession in your life. An original artwork is so unique and special, the person you give it to will think of you every time they look at it. If you like some of the samples of my work you see here, then first we need to establish some kind of communication, either by phone or email. We`ll talk about what you need and if I feel I can fill your needs I`ll have you send me some images. I`ve done lot`s of paintings for all kinds of people so I bet if you convey to me what you want I can come up with just the right look, in a short period of time and at a very reasonable price. If you need me to use bits and pieces from a pile of old photos to come up with what you want, no problem, been there, done that. If you would like me to come to wherever you are and take photos I will make arrangements to do so and won`t charge an arm and a leg, well… for sure not a leg. Once we decide on a course of action I`ll put together a composition for you to look at and I`ll email it to you. You look over the rough outline and we`ll discuss any changes you may want. And so it goes, I keep sending you periodic updates until your painting is completed to your satisfaction. Here`s the best part, you don`t pay me anything until we`re finished with this process and you are completely satisfied. That word process is an important one. Creating a Quality Portrait is a process, a painting like this can transcend almost anything you may have as one of your most prized possessions. I don`t take the creation of a portrait lightly and neither should you, after all it`s for someone very special or you wouldn`t have gotten this far.
