We offer two stunning finishes that give our portraits their signature unique and exquisite look:
Our timeless finish is a beautiful coupling of the detail of a photograph with the luxuriance of a painting. This process involves extensive detail work over every highlight and nuance of the portrait, it is then printed on the highest quality Giclee canvas with a technique that will allow for 200 years worth of enjoyment. Your art piece is then finished to perfection with hand-applied artistry for a classic, refined look.
Our masterpiece collection provides our most extraordinary finish and it is exclusively available on portraits 30” or larger. Reminiscent of the works of the Old Masters, your portrait will be transformed with hand-applied brush strokes, highlights, and artistry into a museum-quality painting that the will awe the most discerning of art enthusiasts.
