HOW IT WORKS

SPARK PORTRAITS KEEPS IT SIMPLE. IN FACT, WE THINK IT'S EASIER THAN 1, 2, 3

1

FILL OUT THE ORDER FORM

Tell me about the person you would like a portrait of. This helps me get a feel for the person and the things they like, which I sometimes include in the painting. Choose your frame and format for the time lapse video.

2

UPLOAD A FEW PHOTOS

Upload 3-5 photos of the person you want painted.  This provides me with a better feel for their personality. 
Keep in mind that what you consider to be a great photo of the person you love may not be a great photo for me to use to paint a portrait. 

 

  1.  Photos should be taken in daylight at a 3/4 view, meaning I can see both eyes and one ear. 

  2.  Their mouths should be closed and eyes open, with a relaxed or serious facial expression. Surprisingly, big smiles can sometimes seem goofy in a painted portrait. 

  3.  Click below for a few examples of good photos I have used. 

 

After photos are received you will get an order confirmation email that provides the estimated date your painting will be completed.

ENJOY!

Even though your painting will be created in 90 minutes, oil paint takes about a week to dry. When your painting is dry, I will frame it and ship it off to you via Fed-EX with a tracking number. Enjoy your work of art, and the video of its creation.
