Our experienced portrait artist will create a portrait picture drawn with the Dry Brush (Oil Paint) technique of you or of someone you love. The creation of your portrait begins when you send us the photograph you have chosen to become a Portrait. We check your photo to ensure that it is suitable to reproduce it into a Portrait Drawing and then begin the process of creating your ultimate personalized Art Work.



Once we have finished drawing your portrait we will apply a fixator to the drawing. Then a black mountboard is applied and we ship the drawing to you by post. It is recommended to frame the drawing under a frame with glass and store it away from direct sunlight to keep its quality.


Dry Brush (Oil Paint) Technique



Dry brush is a drawing technique in which a small amount of paint is applied on a dry paintbrush and painted on paper or canvas. This technique gives a more dramatic effect than traditional pencil drawing. High contrast is achieved with black oil paint on white paper. Dry oil painting technique arose in the mid-80s among the street painters of "Arbat", the pedestrian area in the historic heart of Moscow. Dry brush is perceived as a non-traditional technique and is rarely used. However, these days, it is becoming more popular among artists. Drawings are made on high quality artist white paper and they are carefully preserved. Size with mountboard for portrait of one person approximately 32cm X 32cm, depending on the photograph provided. Other sizes available upon request.
