Above is our painting, below is the original photo.

Look at the background, our painting is more brighter with bluer sky and water.

As to commissioned painting, which is  featured with likeness and realism, creativeness also can be taken into consideration when painting.

For example, matching an appropriate background if the original is poor. Darken or lighten the tonalities in order to that the overall painting will turn out good.



Couple portrait

July 23rd, 2013

We completed this couple portrait painting recently. I’m so sorry to hear that the woman in the photo passe away a few months ago. After receiving the painting, the customer said:

“I received it and its at the framing shop now. The framing shop commented on the good quality of the canvass used (apparently, many places use a lesser quality canvass)–thank you for that.  My wife passed away a few months ago, and this portrait is very special to me. I appreciate the care you took with it.  ”

You can see that we did a mock up image before painting. We cropped the original photo to the size of  wanting, matched a light blue solid background for it.  In order to turn out a good painting, sometimes photoshop and mock-up is a must before painting. That’s why we can convert any kind of photo into painting.





House portrait painting

July 15th, 2013

It’s likely that you know how to get a photo more closer by photographing, but do you know how to make it larger and looks like more closer when painting?

At portrait painting, we made it. See the original photo, the house is a little far away and small, the customer wants to get a painting with a closer vision of the house. So we made a mock up image and then turn it into a painting after approval.

The below is our painting, larger the house, and stand out the topic, much better. Thanks for the good idea from the owner of the artwork.




We completed this painting recently, you will see how beautiful the blue water!!

Compare the painting with the original image. Have you found the slight differences between them?

Friends portrait painting

May 22nd, 2013

We received a feedback in our inbox yesterday:

I received my painting last week and was completely ecstatic about it. It was perfect, everything I had hoped it would be. The detailing and craftsmanship was perfect. I had requested it by a certain date as it was a gift for my boyfriend and I received it well before then. I cannot wait to give it to him. Thank you sooo much!!

Wedding gift

May 22nd, 2013

We completed this portrait recently.

In the initial proof, there was a fatal error–they are blue eyes with the original photo, however, it was brown on the canvas when completed. “The original image is too small and it looks like their eyes’ color is brown”, our artist said. Thanks for the customer emailed us reference pictures for their blue eyes,  the corrected portrait turned out so beautiful.

Yes, absolutely the higher resolution of  the original photo is, the more realistic and human look of the painting would be.

Horse Painting

November 23rd, 2010

Below is a recent horse painting we completed.  In the original photo, the horses ears were cut off.  Our customers one request was to complete paint so the horses ears were not cut off.

In the second photo, you will see a picture of the completed painting.  The painting looks just as good (if not better in my opinion) as the original.  The painting measures 20″ x 30″ and it is an oil on canvas.

Beach Wedding Photo

November 23rd, 2010

We recently completed this 24″ x 36″ oil painting.  The first photo was the customer’s original photo.  We had to crop in the photo a bit to really capture the couple.

The second photo is a picture of the completed painting.

Old Photo Turned Into Painting

November 23rd, 2010

We completed this order several weeks ago.  The original photo was rather old and grainy.  When working with old photos, it’s sometimes difficult to turn the photos into paintings because it’s difficult to see the intricate details of the photo.

The customer in this case wanted the painting done but with a few changes.

Here were the customer’s requests.

The first photo is how my in-laws should look in terms of where they stand and how their clothes look.  My mother facial expression should match exactly like the first photo except her mouth should be close like the second photo.  Also photo 2 is how I would like to have my father in-laws facial expression to look like.

The third photo was created by our Photoshop expert.  We sent the Photoshop mock-up to our customer and they liked it.  We started the painting, finished it, and the customer was ecstatic.
