Customize a Family Portrait from Your PhotoLily
Families play an essential role in our life. Whenever we get hurt, families give us comfort and love which heal our wound. There are many valuable moments with them that we hope to keep forever. Luckily, there are many talented artists who specialized in turning our family photos into different kinds of portrait paintings that we love.
There are several kinds of media for options, and among them, oil painting, pencil sketch, watercolor, and colored pencil drawing are the most popular. However, when you are considering the medium, instead of popularity, you should choose a suitable one according to your photo. So firstly, let us have a look at the type of family photos.
Most of the case, the family photos from our customers contain two or three figures, they are the parent and child, the grandparent and grandchild, the sister and brother, twins, the parent and dog or cat (yes, this parent and pet photos usually come from the daughters, who want to memorize the time between their parents and pets). Because of the number of figures, this type of paintings should be at least 16 x 20 inches or 20 x 24 inches. Besides, this painting can include all the background, but it needs to be not complicated. Otherwise, the focus will be on the background instead of the persons. Our professional artists can make this type of photos into lovely oil paintings, pencil sketches, watercolor portraits and so on. In a word, a few figures and simple background photos can be turned into all kind of media.
Photo with more than three figures, 24 x 24 inches and 24 x 30 inches will be much better. Otherwise, the details of the persons can’t be captured very well. As for the background, it is usually a neat color background, which can be chosen on our website by Choose From Background Color. When the figures are more than two, we recommend oil painting, watercolor, and colored pencil. The reason that we do not recommend pencil sketch is it can not express the prosperous feeling of the photo very well compared to other media. Pencil Sketch is suitable for house photo, landscape photo, and two-figures photo, but not a large-figure photo.
Let’s move on to the part that different occasions and ceremonies for giving out framed family portraits.
