Using the fusion of photography and art, I have perfected this art form of virtual portrait painting. With the realism of a photograph, but beyond the capacity of the camera is artistic portraiture suitable for the most discriminating tastes. These one-of-a-kind fine art portraits make paintings more affordable than traditional oils.
I start with the painting in mind and create a photographic portrait.
That portrait is enhanced. Then it is turned into a custom digital painting using an electronic brush. Every detail is painted stroke by stroke over my photograph, and through the use of colors, textures and contrast turned into a modern master piece.
The final custom digital portrait painting is printed on an archival giclee canvas on stretcher frame. In addition, the surface is finished by hand with a textured lacquer to give it a lasting finish and depth, and finally signed. The finished painting appears as an old master painting with a modern sensibility.
“Barbara’s photography adorns our home with a grace that keeps us in touch with what matters most in life. Her portraits capture the beauty of the people most dear to us with a clarity that illumines their most precious qualities. She combines this with a creative artistry that inspires the depths of our feelings for our dear ones. We hope others too will have the opportunity to partake of her exceptional work.” Michael Evans
