Virtual paintings start as fine digital photographic images and are recreated using software programs like Photoshop and Corel Painter to produce a fine, painterly image that simulates with, great veracity, a hand produced work of art. It is an art, much like the art it simulates. The paintings are hand painted using a graphics tablet and digital brushes. This allows the artist to paint and draw in the computer just as a painter paints on a canvas or watercolor block. The resulting "painting" is then printed on canvas or one of the high quality archival fine art papers available using a professional printer capable of very high, museum quality results. These prints are, by any standard, unique, fine quality artwork.
The prices for these portrait paintings start at $100 if you supply the photograph and rise based on size and content. Please call or e-mail if you would like to commission a portrait and we can discuss the price, style, size and timing.
Matting and framing are available at an additional price.
