Studio Background

Having your oil portrait painted with a studio background is a very popular option especially if you do not like the background that is seen in your photograph. By ‘studio’  we mean a simple background of similar tones and hues that will complement your painting.

Painterly Style

This style is perfect for painting children. Looser brushstrokes gives the portrait a more gentle feel to it.

Changing the Background (Composite Portraits)

You might have a lovely photo such as the dog above but the background lets it down. If you can provide us with another image of the background that you would like, we can paint it! Now as you can see this dog above is no longer sitting on concrete steps but on his favourite green, where he goes everyday for his walkies.

If you'd like a quote for a beautiful oil portrait please get in touch!
