From time to time, we are asked : ” could you turn a white and black photo into painting?” or “Can you colorize a black and white photo to make a color portrait?” Definitely we can. An experienced artist is good at color matching and skin tones/eyes and so on. A good portrait artist could not only duplicate the photo, the most important thing is to express the motion by his paint brush.
Let’s take a look at the painting and the original photo the portrait based on.

When we receive a high quality photo, it makes the artist job a lot easier. We received the photo below from a customer, and all we had to do is a little cropping. The result was a stunning 30″ x 36″ oil painting.
What’s really stunning about this painting is how the artist was able to replicate the details on the face. The details are nearly exact and the color is rich and natural.

The customer sent us the image below and it was named BigDaddy.jpg. Our artist took the photo and turned it into a beautiful 30″ x 40″ oil painting.
