I've been commissioned to do a few portraits, including children and babies and these are a few examples.
The one of Claudia and her baby was taken from two separate photographs, one of Claudia and one of the baby, which I merged into one painting.
The father of baby Hiram, Marvin, liked the painting so much he ordered one of himself when he was a child. He has also requested a painting of his son as a young boy. He wanted Hiram dressed in Lindsay Scottish plaid and to be set in a Scottish background. I used the Rob Roy stance and costume, fitted to Hiram's size and put Edinburgh Castle in the background. This is his response on seeing the finished painting,
"Dear Maggie,I hope you are fine, I have the painting and it is f#$@ing awesome...Sorry about the language but I am totally in shock at seeing the likeness of my son and how you have captured it so perfectly. I am more than happy...Thank you so much...Xxx
So, just contact me if you wish to have a unique oil painting of your own favourite person. Just provide a few photos.
