Family Portrait From Photo

Telling tales of "the one that got away" begins early in life. When your story is backed by your brother, you begin to believe it yourself and when the adults play along, well, that confirms it. It must be true! FISH TALES is an action portrait of two young children, sweet lttle fishermen with big imaginations telling tales of the one that got away by portrait artist Hanne Lore Koehler. Commission a painting of children playing or child action portrait from your photo direct from artist studio online. Buy canvas prints, art prints, posters, metal prints and art cards of your painting direct from artist studio gallery online.

Like most of my children's action paintings, this is a hand-painted portrait from photo. To be clear, I only use photographs as reference material for my original paintings, often producing detailed pencil drawings on the canvas before I paint. My portraits are hand-painted original paintings done by looking at a photograph of the subject as if the subject were sitting in my studio. They are NOT painted over top of a mechanically reproduced photograph.
