HOW MUCH IS IT ?


This depends on many factors, such as; do you supply the photograph as reference photo to the Artist, or do we go on Location to photograph you, your child or your pet, it depends on the type of art chosen, digital artwork or traditional oil painting (size, number of pets or people in the portrait, detailed background or simple, framed or not etc).


It is always a good idea to consider all these options when asking for a quote, but if you want to chat them through first please don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions and I will be happy to talk them through with you.


AND HOW DOES IT WORK ?

We don't just use an app to click on a single filter that resembles art . . . no, these Keepsake fine art creations are actually all done "by hand" by a talented fine art artist. BY HAND we mean using a pro art software like Procreate and Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter etc., using a computer tablet as the canvas and a stylus pen as the painting brush or a iPad Pro with apple pencil, with many mediums and brush options to create art that looks and feels like a traditional portrait painting on high quality cotton canvas. The Photo you submit is merely the reference image, our Artist starts always with a blank canvas to create THE MAGIC.


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 $350 (just rolled canvas and shipped in a travel tube, shipping not included) or up to $1000 (framed canvas with custom wooden Float Frame, prices vary 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.

Sometimes, a complex piece may take 2 - 3 months to be completed, on average

we try to complete within 4-6 weeks.



CUSTOM PORTRAIT PAINTING...THE ACTUAL PROCESS:


  1. 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 of course). Choose from custom portrait paintings in oil, acrylic or watercolor look, 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.

  4. If you rather commission a traditional hand painted portrait with real oil, painted by a portrait artist, please inquire about our Signature Portraits.
