INTRODUCING STYLIZED PORTRAITS…

Peter has launched a small series of promotional portraits found under the heading, “PORTFOLIO” depicting everyday people presented in his unique painting style.  In a homecoming of sorts Peter has comeback to his first love and that is the human face and all it’s wonderful characteristics and nuances.  Bringing both distinction and depth through the primary use of hand carved wood he hopes to create one of a kind likenesses using graphite, acrylic and oil.

He is always happy to meet and talk with clients at mutually decided upon locations.  In the first introductory meeting he will discuss with you the size and possible compositions for the portrait along with any other preliminary details.   Although a variety of reference photos would be preferred please be ready to supply what is available to you.  Family and friend photos are deeply cherished, so assurances are made that they will be returned in exactly the same condition they are given.  If the individual is present, some photography may be used.  A second meeting could be requested in order to present a line drawing, if a painting has been commissioned.  This would be the stage before the image is transferred to wood.

Peter typically paints close to life-size which means the smallest size for a head-only portrait would be about 11” x 13”. Prices for acrylic & oil on wood begin at $500 for simple head-only portraits and range upwards as size and complexity increases. A second figure would add an additional 75% to the cost.  Drawn portraits, in graphite on paper, begin at $300. These prices include materials and photographic costs.  Travel expenses and any other incidental costs, such as packing and shipping, are extra.

As Peter continues to rekindle his passion for portraiture he hopes to create moving pieces of art that are filled with spirit and joy!

Please feel free to contact Peter regarding any aspect or stage of a commissioned portrait.
