COMMISSION A PORTRAIT FROM KERRY SPENCE
I have enjoyed making portraits for people for 15 years - the most special moment is when I present it to them and they can see their loved one has ‘come to life’ on the paper or canvas!
I’ve got to say that’s my favourite part of the whole journey! I don’t actually like making people cry - but there are often tears. I know I have done good work when they feel like they can really ‘see’ the person.
A good, clear close-up image of the person you want drawn
if you are having trouble choosing send a few images to me and we will decide together which is the best photo to work from.
A good, clear image of the person, plus about a dozen images of family and friends,
The subject doing what they love such as playing music or hobbies they enjoy, or their garden - anything that tells the life story of the person.
It might be recipes, medals they have been awarded, citizenship papers or letters they have written.
When ordering an oil portrait, a clear image of the person is required. Ideally, a few images will help me to see details in the image that will help in the finished portrait.
All oil portraits are painted on linen canvas stretched on a solid pine frame ready to hang.
If you are looking for a special gift for someone in your life consider a portrait in charcoal or a story portrait. I can assure you it will be a gift that is treasured.
