Portrait Art

With the fusion of photography and art, Black Dog has perfected this form of painting with the realism of a photograph. This intricate process involves tremendous attention to detail, adding hand brush strokes, color and highlights while following the tradition of the Master Portrait painters such as Reynolds, Gainsborough and Sargent.

Portrait Art Brush Strokes

We’ve  created a method of enhancing photographic images with hand-applied artistic touches, resulting in timeless portraits similar to oil paintings costing several thousand dollars. Every detail is controlled including light, composition and clothing harmony. Painted to perfection, this technique takes us beyond the capacity of photography to a level of artistic portraiture suitable for the most discriminating clients.
