Q1 : What image is suitable for a quality painting from photo?
We can work with almost any photo as long the details are clear enough to see the defining details by the artist to produce a quality custom painting. If the photos resolution is not enough to paint we will contact you before processing your order. If The original is a small photo we would recommend minimum 600DPI scanned image.
Q2 : What is the turnaround time for a painting?
It will take at least 3 weeks for paintings and another 3-6 business days for shipping. The turnaround time varies according to the complexity of the painting.
Paintings take time so that it can be as precise as possible. We can also provide a photographic proof of the painting when it is near completion so that changes can be made before we stretch it.
Q3 : Do you offer custom acrylic, charcoal, pencil, pastel or watercolor artwork?
No, currently we only offer oil paintings.
Q4 : Will the painting look exactly like the photo?
All our painters are very skilled and experienced and they will do their best to get the painting as close to the image as possible. If the photo is low resolution or small please provide us with addition reference photos.
Q5 : I like a painting/photo/artwork by a certain artist can I get it reproduced if I send you a photo?
To be able to reproduce artwork by another artist you have to make sure that: you have consent by the artist to reproduce it, you have copyright ownership of it or the artist has been dead for over 75 years.
For classical paintings (by Van Gogh, Monet and etc), there are no copyright laws for these paintings and it is considered public domain as long as the reproducers do not claim that it is the original - these paintings can be reproduced by us.
