Oil Portrait Artist - Frank Perkins ARCM FRSA

The process

The commission of an oil painting begins with a meeting or phone call between the client and the artist. This will formalise the details of the portrait and provide you with a cost based on the subject matter and size of the portrait. Upon finalising these details, a photography shoot will be organised at an agreed location. This should take no more than two hours to complete. The photography will be reviewed and by working closely with you, the client, a final selection of shots will be determined from which the final portrait will be created at the artist's studio. Alternatively, live sittings can be arranged at the artist's studio if this is preferred. 

Portraits are painted in oils on stetched 100% pure linen fine grain canvas to a variety of size formats. Portaits can also be executed on canvas board or painting panels. A gesso high quality primer is used for preparing the canvas for painting.
