We offer two choices of signature artistry for your portrait:
Special time is invested into creating your “Masterpiece” portrait. After the principal photography is conducted and the selections are chosen for finishing, we first refine the imagery to have you looking your best. Then we meticulously weave in artful, painterly touches to the photograph, inspired by the Masters of Art through the ages, transforming the image with lush brushstrokes, tones and textures, achieving an original fine-art look reminiscent of a classical painting.
This is printed in a silver-halide photographic process achieving a museum-quality finish on which several layers of lacquered varnish are applied to preserve and enrich its appearance. The result? A timeless custom artwork you’re certain to treasure for years, then ultimately, some day hand down from generation to generation, connecting together through time all those who will surely also cherish this precious gift.
For our clients desiring a work of art even more distinctive, unique and stunning, we take your portrait to the highest caliber with our finest finish, the “Rembrandt.” At this level of artistry, it’s more of a fine-art process. We apply brushstroke textures to the portrait piece now by hand, rendering it further with several painterly layers of oil color glazes serving to accentuate, enhance and embellish the imagery. The canvas is treated to layers of lacquer which protect it and extend its beauty, by deepening and enriching its tones. This artistry adds a lavish dimension rivaling the distinguished look of a timeless oil painting.
This exquisite heirloom is the crown jewel of portraits. It becomes a one-of-a-kind personal art piece created exclusively for you, such as you would see exhibited in the halls of a museum. It is unlike any other, standing the test of time, and is worthy of display in the finest homes. The “Rembrandt” premium hand-finish is limited to only portraits sized 30″ to six feet.
