Digital Oil Paintings

We can now create digital oil paintings from your favorite and most treasured family photographs and images. If you are looking for a special wall picture of a loved one or pet to be made from your own family snapshots, this may be perfect for you. We can digitally paint your picture from almost any photograph or combination of photos, black and white or colour.

Why choose us for your Digital oil Paintings?

At Portraits by Hart we have been photographing and creating wall portraits for over 55 years. We have gained many awards for our portrait photography during this time. During the last few years alone we have been awarded over 50 SWPP Gold Awards and the title of SWPP UK Digital Art Photographer of the Year. So as you can see we are well qualified to create your Digital Oil Paintings.

Digital oil paintings are original works of art created from your own treasured photographs and images.

If you are looking for a wall picture to be made from one of your favourite family photos, having them transformed into digital oil paintings is a fantastic way of turning them into something really special .

Creating digital oil paintings is no less skilful than painting in real oils and paints. The main advantages of painting digitally are that the final painting can be saved, this means extra artworks can be created in the future for friends and relations if required. The painting can also be made from a combination of photographs and images. The final artwork can also be viewed before the finished framed canvas is produced. This allows time for any final corrections to be made if need be.

When we create a digital oil painting we start off by scanning your original photograph to a high resolution. The scanned photograph is then retouched to improve the image. In some cases the photo is totally restored. Cracks and blemishes are removed and missing parts are replaced. If the final artwork is to be made from a combination of photos the montage is then put together. Once this initial work is completed we then get started on the actual painting. The digital oil painting itself is then created by our award winning digital artist in state of the art imaging and painting software. The artwork is painted brush stroke by brush stroke by the means of a graphics tablet.

Painting digitally is just as skilful as painting in real life, the only difference is the screen is the canvas! Creating the painting takes many hours of patient work. How many hours depends on the complexity of the final painting.

Once the artwork is completed and approved we then turn the digital image into an actual canvas work of art. The painting is printed by means of an Epson wide format printer and onto the very best quality Fuji Artist Cotton Canvas using K3 Pigment Inks. This means the final artwork will keep it's vibrant colours for many decades if hung correctly and away from direct sunlight.

Once the canvas has been printed it then goes onto the next stage in the process. The canvas painting is either stretched over wooden stretcher bars or mounted onto a sturdy board. Then a layer of special varnish is applied by hand. The varnish is applied brush stroke by brush stroke following the lines of the strokes in the painting. This special varnish adds vibrancy and richness to colours and dries to keep the texture of the brush strokes This further enhances the painting and adds the feel of an actual oil painting. Then all the painting needs is the finishing touch of a nice picture frame.
