COMMISSION AN ORIGINAL Child PORTRAIT, Oil on Stretched Canvas
Painted by professional artist Evelyn Crow

I am Scotland based artist who is warmly accepting commissions for custom painted portraits.

Child portrait can make a wonderful always dearly received Christmas, Birthday, Mothers or Fathers day gift. For over ten years I have assisted and helped my lovely costumers to surprise their close ones with a gift of art. Portrait is a way to celebrate the child and the unique connection between family members. It celebrates Love and can there be a better gift that a gift of love?

Using romantic brushstrokes of the Old Masters I give my paintings a realistic and dimensional feeling. I draw inspiration from work of such a fine artists as John Singer Sargent, William-Adolphe Bouguereau and Rembrandt.

Each portrait holds a special meaning to me, I paint it from my soul trying to capture the hidden stories, delicate emotions, an entire personality.

It is my goal as an artist to capture that fleeting moment of innocence before the child grows into adulthood. The "one" moment that is so brief and then gone again. It is the most intense, most precious moment, the "one" moment that is never forgotten. Isn't that what life is all about? Those little moments along the way?

CHOOSING PHOTOGRAPH FOR THE PORTRAIT

All my portraits are painted from photographs. If you are thinking of having a portrait done why not to email me your favorite images. I will be happy to have a look at them for you and will get back to you with detailed feedback.

There are couple important things to look out for while choosing the right photo.
Here are some tips that will help you select some good photographs:

* good lighting and contrast.
*outdoor photographs generally work the best due to their hi-contrast and sharp focus but shouldn't be taken in a direct light. Direct light creates very strong light/shadow line which may not look very well on the portrait.
*soft shadow is good as it is the shadow and light that gives the painting its dimension.
*I cannot work from tiny images or photographs that are blurry, with no shadow, no detail, no "studio portraits". Please, avoid images taken with a mobile phone.
* high resolution images are preferred as I can depict from them more and paint your portrait in more detail.
* in some cases it is still possible to use low resolution photos but I would need to see it first to be able to decide.
* don't worry about the background or what else in the shot, I am able to remove it and paint with plain background
* the best images are when the child is in a most natural pose, with light or no smile.
* more than one photograph of the subject is perfect, as I can then get an over all image.

PAYMENT:

Once we agree on size, price and photo I will ask you to pay 50% of the orders value.

I will create reserved listing which will cover 50% of the total value. Remaining amount and shipping charges will need to be paid once the portrait is completed and approved by you.

QUALITY AND SATISFACTION GUARANTEE

I guarantee an exact likeness of the subject and that your painting will be completed in a style consistent with my portfolio/website.

Costumer satisfaction is most important to me.
During the process I will email you with at least two images of work in progress, each taken at different stage. Once you receive them you are welcome to comment and request adjustments. It is extremely important to me to know you are happy with the progress and the outcome that is why I always take into account your feedback.

Once the portrait is completed you will receive another image. This is also the time when you can ask for any further adjustments. I will keep working on the portrait until you are really happy with it.
If for some reason we can not get it right for you than this is the time to ask for refund. Once the portrait is shipped I can not longer accept any returns. So please make your decision carefully.

I've been painting portraits for over 10 years and I've never had a request for refund so please do not worry. I am sure we can make it work. It just means so much to me to have customers who are genuinely 'in love' with their painting that I won't stop until you have the portrait you dreamed about. Th painting you and your family will cherish for life.

To ensures durability and permanence of the portrait I use highest grade professional materials.
