Alan King

Don't worry. If you call me to ask about a portrait it won't be one of those conversations where you feel obligated to commit to something. We can just chat about what you have in mind.
I'm self-taught. I learned by doing and looking at work that I admired. I've been doing it so long now that the technical side is second nature. Oil on canvas is a wonderful medium and I love painting with it. The challenge is conveying the sitter's essential character.
I prefer to work from life, but people often don't have the time for long sittings. So I usually take a multitude of photographs from various angles.
Depending on the size, it takes about two months to complete. Prices start at $600.00 for a 16 x 20.
