The Special Day

The Process

Every original hand painted Portrait starts with a clean canvas and we use only the best quality oil paint and materials. All are painted by hand, by Master Artists, and each follows the process shown below.

The Comparison

We only use Master Artists and not apprentices, thus our quality is superior in every way. All Portraits go through a detailed quality control process at the Artist's Studio. They are then carefully inspected and stretched for packaging in our Studio located in Tennessee. Every Portrait is painted from scratch. We never print on canvas then add globs of paint to give the appearance of an Original Portrait.

We offer Realism and Impression styles, both masterfully done to last for generations.

Even a novice can notice the obvious difference in quality from an apprentice and a Master Portrait Artist. Take, for example, the simple comparison below.

Competitor's PortraitNotice how the hands, face, eyes, and mouths are not in proportion. Also look at the way the hair is painted, how the background is colored and the unnatural facial expressions. This is a typical painting from a lower quality Artist. Now imagine a portrait of this quality being shipped to you rolled inside a tube.

Now compare this with ours, painted by a Master Artist. We paint, prepare, and pack your portrait so it can be proudly handed down for generations to come.

Our PortraitNotice the soft strokes in the hair, face, and back- ground. Notice the shadows on the wall. Look at the detail of the lace on the dress, and especially notice the eyes and facial expression. It is painted as though you are standing right beside her – the proportions are perfect. This is the work of a true Master Artist and reflects the quality you will receive from OilPortraits.com.

How we Pack and Ship?

We will never send your Portrait rolled in a tube:
Dont-Ship-Rolled
Many companies do not fully disclose that your portrait is actually painted on synthetic canvas and then simply rolled in a tube and shipped directly to you. You then must have it stretched on stretcher bars and add a backing.

Stretching the canvasEvery Portrait from OilPortraits.com is carefully inspected, then Museum stretched (the paint is carried around all four sides after stretching) on premium stretcher bars.

Every Portrait is carefully placed in a plastic envelope and carefully wrapped and boxed for shipping via FedEx ground.

Each Shipment is then sent via Federal Express Ground, SIGNATURE REQUIRED. You will receive an automatic email once your portrait is in quality control and the drying stage. Then approximately 7 days later you will receive an email with the tracking number for your shipment. Once received, your Portrait is ready for framing.
