Custom portrait painting from your photo with soft pastels

(4 customer reviews)




High Quality Soft Pastel Paint portraits of your Family and Friends hand drawn by Dina Fitzgerald.

Soft pastels on paper in different sizes. I use Sennelier Pastel bars for my portraits and only the best materials.

I can turn any photograph into a handmade high quality soft pastels portrait. I can create anything from a portrait of yourself, your child and loved ones to a painting of your pet. I am a skilled fine art painter and graphic designer, with many years of work experience in Europe (Germany and Greece) and the US.
The process to make a single Pastel Portrait takes between 3-4 weeks.

If you would like a specific background color, please include it in your comments during checkout.
The quality of your photos is very important in order to make a good portrait. The better the picture(s), the better the final result will be.

Painting order and creation process:

1. Add the desired size painting to your cart.

2. Upload your photos and write your instructions at checkout.

3. Place your order.

4. I will create one or two rough drafts and upon your approval, I will start the painting. I will be keeping you updated on the progress with comments and pictures. I will make any necessary changes until you are happy with it.

5. I finish the painting and email you a digital file to review it. This is your chance to make final comments.

6. I will ship the painting to you.

Once the portrait is finished I spray it with a professional Pastel Fixative, which will protect the painting for the years to come. It will be mailed to you either rolled in a strong tube, or inside a padded large envelope.

I can transform photographs of your loved-ones into unique, high quality, affordable, hand-drawn full color portraits. Each Portrait is a genuine work of art which can be kept and enjoyed or given as a wonderful personal gift.

    In my family, when a grandchild graduated high school, my grandfather, who was an artist, would create an oil painting of their graduation picture. Sadly, my grandfather passed away before he could finish all 5 of my siblings. He was only able to paint my eldest brother and sister and my 2 sisters and I were left without one of his precious paintings. I came to Dina in search of 3 paintings that looked like my grandfathers. Every step of the way, Dina was extremely accommodating and helpful, sending updates of the portraits and keeping me in the know the entire time. She EXCEEDED our expectations and we still cannot get over how BEAUTIFUL and similar her oil paintings are to my grandfathers. Our hearts are so full and we can finally hang all of the 5 portraits in our home and be reminded of our grandfather every day!

    I ordered two portraits as birthday gifts for my friend. The soft pastels were not only cheap but also in perfect qualities. They looked very similar to the original photos. The facial expressions were vivid, and the coloring was gorgeous. My friend enjoyed them very much. Dina is a very nice seller as well. She sent me updates of my portraits on time. She also scanned the portraits as high-quality images for backup.
