Zeh Portraits in Watercolor or Oil

Keep warm memories alive with a custom portrait painting.
    Painted from your photos in your choice of watercolor or oil
    • Watercolor portrait is painted with permanent paints on heavyweight, acid-free watercolor paper. Watercolors need a frame with a glass front.
    • Oil portrait is painted on high quality archival canvas with a painted edge - framing is optional.
    • Painting is unframed so you can frame it the way you like.
    How to order a Zeh Portrait
    1. Find or take some good pictures. The best photos are non-flash photos in natural light. Try to get a picture in the shade on a nice day. Send large-sized, clear images for best results.
    2. For more than one person in the same portrait,  send at least one photo of them together to show the correct size proportions. There will be an extra charge for each additional person in the portrait.
    3. Choose the size and medium you want above. Click "Add to Cart" and check out securely. You may pay by credit/debit card or PayPal. To send a check or money order, please contact me.
    4. A receipt will be emailed to you and I will send you a link to a questionnaire for you to fill out. This will help with colors and personality.
    5. Once you finish the questionnaire, you will receive the address to send your photos. You may send your photos by email, regular mail, or upload them to an image sharing site such as Picasa.
    6. Allow two to three weeks after I receive the photos for the painting to be finished.
    7. For additional sizes or more than one person in the portrait, please contact me.

    About Your Portrait
    • Your portrait is an original hand-painted watercolor or oil painting
    • Watercolor painting is done on heavyweight archival 100% acid-free watercolor paper with permanent watercolor pigments
    • Oil painting is done on acid-free archival canvas and is unvarnished. Your painting will be dry to the touch and can be framed, but please wait six months if you wish to varnish to allow the oil paint to thoroughly cure.
    • Unframed. Framing directions for watercolors and varnishing suggestions for oils are included.
