Thank you for your interest in a custom painting from Laura Green Studio!
All artwork is original and hand made. This is not a digital reproduction. I use Golden brand professional grade acrylic paint on your choice of stretched canvas or canvas board. This paint is light fast and permanent, with no extenders, fillers or dyes added and is UV resistant. It does not need to be framed behind glass.
I use photographic reference but my work is not photorealistic. My artwork is meant to be interpretive, and is inspired by the work of the Impressionists. My focus is on color and light, and uses gestural brushwork.
Spend some time collecting your favorite photos and send over a collection of 5-10 images. You can send them through IG to @lauragreenstudio or email: email@example.com.
iPhone photos are usually fine. The photos should be clear and in focus, and the eyes of the subject should show detail and a little sparkle. The best photos have consistent lighting, and no hats, costumes, sunglasses etc. and have no filters. Sometimes portrait mode can lose detail as well so please send some without that mode. I will select one or two and crop it to my liking but this will be my source for the painting.
For children and pets, looking away from the camera or engaged in an activity associated with their interests make a better painting.
A full purchase of "custom portrait" (see below in Shopify) or payment through Venmo, PayPal or Zelle is preferred before starting. As an alternative, I require 50% up front as a minimum commitment before beginning.
RECEIVING YOUR ARTWORK
At the finishing stages, you will have a chance to review it and request small changes if any are needed.
You can expect your artwork to be shipped via USPS or UPS. The customer covers shipping, and you will pay for this at the time of check out in Shopify, or can request a quote ahead of time.
Our business is growing, and we do offer a discount for referrals so please tell your friends! Your help to promote Laura Green Studio in Instagram or Facebook with an un-unboxing reel, a review, or a couple of pictures of the artwork after you receive it, is much appreciated!
Note: I retain the rights to use my artwork digitally in promotion for my business, unless specifically requested by the customer not to.
Paintings are intended to be framed! I have framing options available for an additional fee.
