Portrait paintings on canvas

Award winning artist Maria has been commissioning portraits across the world using her own techniques and style she has developed over the years as a self taught and makes sure to create a successful portrait of client's wishes.

Working from photographs Maria creates precise  life like portraits on canvas and needs to know the following to start the process.

  • Client's hopes for the portrait

  • What kind of person is the subject?

  • Should the mood be formal or informal?

  • Where will the painting hang?

  • Background options

  • Size of the canvas

  • Medium

Gaining the right reference photo is very important and Maria will involve in selecting the one to paint.

Once deciding on the final reference photo, size and the medium, a non refundable 50% deposit is necessary to proceed with the painting.

Completion of the painting takes about 5 weeks but it may vary depending on the size and the complexity. You will receive an email with a photo of the completed painting for your approval. Once the remaining balance has been transferred, delivery will be arranged. 



You will receive the painting well packed with a signed Authenticity certificate.
