I am working from photographs but you may ask for some special
compositions, different clothes, new backgrounds, etc.
I am able draw and paint from life and I have worked as
a police artist to sketch crime suspects in the past. So
don't be curious about likeness of your portraits or my
talent. But I am not painting or drawing live at this time.
Unfortunatelly, having time to sit is not always possible
or desirable for everyone. Especially I am making very high
detailed artworks and painting nonstop for very long and
weary hours. A good photo taken in natural light is a valuable
tool and can create a beautiful portrait.
It is important to discuss the idea of the portrait: will
it be with plain background or detailed background with
furniture, garden, etc?
I will work in Ellicott City, Maryland.
Drawings are usually will be finished in a week, but oil
paintings may need 15 days to a month. You can ask how much
time it will take your ordering process.
I will prefer to show preliminary sketches and ask for your
approval on complicated compositions only.
Please come back again to see new samples.
I am also available to draw and paint in different subjects.
You can think about custom paintings subjects.
