All over the world shipping of portraits.
Well-known artists contributing to OnlineArt Gallery will make your portrait,
as well as portraits of your friends and members of your family, for you. You can order a miniature
portrait, a breast portrait, a full-length portrait, a portrait with highly finished background details,
a portrait of yourself in the costume of an 18th-century nobleman, a portrait of your favourite actor or
writer, etc. It is hard to describe all possible variants. Making a classical portrait is a labour-consuming
process, with a technique that takes a lot of time. First the artist sketches out the
background and major details of the future portrait, and only after that will be proceed with careful finish of details.
Normally, a finished oil portrait would have from ten to fifteen paint layers, and it means that the portraitist may continue
work only after having each subsequent layer completely dried. It is for this reason that a portrait usually takes two
to three months to be completed. Today, there is no need for you to visit the artist's studio and spend precious long
hours in sitting for the portrait. You can comfortably order a portrait from your home. It is only enough to send us a
few photographs of your own or a video cassette with a record of the events of your life - and have your portrait made
and delivered to a place you name. In our
gallery of portraits made to order, you may see photographs of earlier
portraits, which will facilitate your own choice of the type of a portrait and the portrait-painter. Feel free
to ask our Gallery managers any kind of questions by e-mail about ordering a portrait. The portraits of such celebrated people as writer Yuz
Aleshkovsky, Josef Brodskij's portrait for the collection of the Brodskij Foundation (USA), the portraits of ballet
stars of world renown Mikhail Barishnikov and Alexander Filippov, actors Michael York, Meryl Streep and many others
were made by the artists working to the orders of OnlineArt Gallery.
