Your Commissioned Portrait Painting - Fine Art vs. Digital Art -

What kind or portrait you decide to commission depends on your personal requirements and definition of art. Portrait painting is a creative process and the possibilities are as limitless as people and painters. You can capture your loved one many times with many different art forms.

Beautiful art can be both traditional and digital. It can be photo realistic or interpretive. Both of these art forms rely on the principles of color theory, perspective, composition and light.

There are several differences between fine art and digital art.  Visually the difference is dimension and texture. Putting 3D printing aside, graphic arts software that would be comparable to traditional painting is two dimensional. Digital art can imitate the texture of paint on canvas, but it cannot replicate the three dimensional quality of paint. Another difference is that digital art will yield as many copies as you want. A painted portrait is a point in time and one-of-a-kind.  A final difference is that an artist spends many more hours creating a painting using traditional methods. With digital art there is no set up, no waste and no mistakes that can't be changed.

Commission a portrait painting and it will have pride of place in your home for years to come.
