Types of Portraits:


Fully Detailed Background portrait is one with a background scene that fills every inch of the background, out to the edges of the painting.

A Fully Detailed Background portrait can have any number of individuals. It can be a human, dog, cat, horse, or any combination of those.

In a Fully Detailed Background portrait the background is custom designed to showcase the beauty of the figure.

Backgrounds can range from simple (not much detail) to very complex (lots of details). The more detail added to the background, the more labor-intensive the painting is to create. Fully Detailed Background portraits are divided into two price categories on the Price List: “Less complex” and “More complex”, depending on the amount of detail in the background.

Less complex

More complex
