Portrait by photo – a unique gift to a loved one

If you are rushing from store to store in search of a gift for a loved one and do not know what to buy, because you want something new, beautiful, unique and memorable, consider this option as a portrait or cartoon with oil paints. Such a gift any woman will remember forever, and a man will be very pleasantly surprised.

In order to make such a gift, you need to find a good artist at least two or three months in advance and provide him with a high-quality and interesting photo. This is very important, because it will be copied from the photo, so do not be lazy and choose the best one, or the one that most likes the person who is preparing a gift.

You can carefully find out about your favorite photo by viewing albums or photos in social networks. Make sure that the facial features and eyes are clearly visible, then the portrait will definitely turn out to be beautiful and of high quality.

You can bring several photos where a person is in different poses and with different facial expressions, so that the artist can put together his idea of the facial features and character of the person, this will significantly help when writing a picture.

As a rule, the most popular portraits are oil, less often pencil or ink. This choice is not accidental, because the oil portrait is more colorful, looks more aristocratic when performed professionally and causes a sense of pride in the owner.

You can even choose the style of execution of the work, if you know that your girl is a fan of impressionism or a great connoisseur of modern art. In this case, you will have to find an artist who will agree to perform just such a work, but now this is not a big problem.

As for the cost of the portrait, all the details must be found out directly from the artist. The price will depend on the size of the portrait, the presence or absence of a finished frame (many artists provide a fully finished portrait in a wooden frame, such as immediately hang on the wall), the urgency of the order and other factors, so the price in each case must be agreed.

A portrait of a loved one or a loved one by photo will be a very original gift that will always remind you of the beautiful moments of life and loved ones who are able to surprise. Please your soul mate and be happy!
