Family Portrait From Photo

This commissioned watercolor portrait of Jocie (Jocelyn) reveals her first shiny new tooth. The painting was a gift from her proud grandma to her parents.

Send me a photograph of your baby and I will reply with a free cost estimate on a watercolor, oil or acrylic portrait painting. Contemporary portraiture, like today's lifestyle, is becoming less formal and rigid now that a subject can easily be captured in a natural unpretentious composition with the aid of spontaneous photography made feasible by affordable digital technology. Formal portraits of the past were generally rigid, sterile poses for the simple reason that a person would have to sit in one position for hours in order for the artist to capture the nuances of his subject. Today's formal photographic portraits are still based on our perceptions of those formal oil paintings. With the advances in today's digital technology, the photograph has simplified the art of portrait painting in that it is no longer necessary for artists to expect their subjects to sit still for long, exhausting periods of time posing for formal, rigid, unrealistic portraits. The contemporary portrait artist can paint action-packed detailed paintings from photographs to produce realistic and informal portraits. A child's portrait is more likely to evoke happy memories if the subject is engaged in a favorite activity in natural surroundings in natural light.
