You have probably already found other companies who offer the service of creating oi paintings from photos.
Before you select a company to turn your photo into an oil painting, you should know this:

When comparing, be sure not only to compare prices, but also the final product which you are paying for. Many studios claim to do 100% handmade oil paintings. However you should know that many of them use a technique which simplifies this process, and is not really 100% handmade.

The technique which they use is to print or photocopy the original photo onto a canvas in a process know as ‘giclee’, and then have an artist go over it with oil paint to give it the look of an oil painting. The outcome may look the same, but there are differences which you might not be aware of:

  • The painting is made up of a combination of print ink and oil paint. This will affect the longevity of your painting, as well as result in the colors fading over time.
  • The oil painting from photo your purchase is not 100% handmade, and is not created using the artist’s artistic touch.
  • The artist who might work on your painting might not even be an experienced artist, since this process does not require the true skills which are needed to do a real 100% handmade painting.

We hope this small explanation will help you pick the right company to transform your photo into an oil painting. If you would like to learn more about this, please Contact Us
