From Photo to Art - Here's how it works:

CELEBRATE THE MOMENTS WITH A CUSTOM PORTRAIT ON YOUR WALL !


KOHALAFOTO partnered with Portrait Artists to offer commissioned custom painting portraits of Babies, Children, Families, Pets and Couples. Our custom Canvas, framed or unframed, are hand -crafted using: Watercolor, Oil, or Acrylic on canvas, metal print or wood, all customizable from your favorite photograph.




SCROLL DOWN TO GALLERIES TO SEE SAMPLES !



We don't just use an app to click on a single filter that resembles art . . . no, these Keepsake wall art creations are actually all done "by hand" by a talented fine art artist. BY HAND we mean using a pro art software like Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter, using a computer tablet as the canvas and a stylus pen as the painting brush, with many mediums and brush options to create art that looks and feels like a traditional portrait painting on high quality cotton canvas.


And we don't stop there ! We make real wood floating frames to give the canvas portrait art a unique look. Options are white, natural, grey or black. The most popular size our clients order is 16 x 20 and will cost approximately $650 (rolled canvas) or $1000 (canvas with custom wooden Float Frame) (price varies according to size and complexity of artwork).




Can I send my own photo


Yes! As long as you can supply a high resolution photograph. Our artist prefers to paint from her own photos and references, but to paint a portrait as a surprise gift, working from your own photography is sometimes possible, depending on the photo.


Pricing is simple and an upfront 50% deposit is required to secure your place on our artist commissioned portrait schedule. The time a commissioned portrait painting takes and the process used depends greatly on the scope of the work.



CUSTOM PORTRAIT PAINTING...THE ACTUAL PROCESS:


  1. we shoot a portrait or you submit a high resolution photo for the Artist to use as reference image.

  2. After a conversation about the medium you will choose, the Artist will create a visual digital composition with our copyright watermark logo on it (the final painting will not have this). Choose from custom portrait paintings in oil or watercolor, or other mediums just browse our gallery to find your favorite style.

  3. After deposit is received Artist will start immediately on your 100% digitally hand-painted portrait painting. Limited revisions included before we send out your art.
