Why Commission A Fine Art Portrait
For centuries, portrait paintings have been a means of honoring those we love, admire, and cherish. Today, in a world of selfies and snapshots, commissioning an oil painting evokes a long-lasting, timeless quality, which cannot be matched by any other means.
By choosing to invest in an oil portrait, you will have peace of mind that it will look as spectacular as it does today in hundreds of years time and remain a legacy for generations to come.
No matter your level of experience within the art world, having a portrait painted is a wonderful way to commemorate an achievement, thank a loved one and immortalise a special moment to be enjoyed every day, and we are here to guide you through the entire journey.
How To Choose The Artist
The world of portraiture is vast and can be overwhelming. Here at The Portrait Agency we have hand selected a talented group of international portrait artists based on their skill, consistency, and passion for creating something truly special.
We often find that our clients are immediately drawn to an artist and connect with their body of works, however, if you need any support or advice in choosing an artist we have a dedicated Commissions Consultant on hand to guide you through this and every other stage to ensure that you get exactly what you are hoping for, taking away any stress or concern.
We will start by getting to know you and asking a few basic questions, such as:
Who is the portrait of? Are you working to a particular size or budget? What style is going to best suit your home? When do you want your portrait completed by?
There is no obligation during these conversations as we are establishing the details and ensuring your chosen artist is the most suitable for the project, guarenteeing an outstanding result.
Based on your requirements the artist will provide you with a quote and agree a timescale.
