Hidden Woods Fine Art
I can paint a portrait (or other subject) for you from your photographs. I prefer to work from unprofessional snapshots vs, professional portraits that sometimes obscure the natural essence of the subject. Prices are based upon painting size and number of subjects. The client approves the preliminary layout sketch before I begin the painting, then approves the under-painting before it is finished (See example below). A $100 deposit is required after approval of the initial layout sketch.. Contact me for questions and to discuss details.
