What our customers are saying


At A Glance: Portrait Painting

Portrait painting has a rich history spanning the centuries, but it’s something that was only done once or twice during a person’s life and would involve a series of sittings with the artist. Some of the most famous artists in history have been commissioned to undertake portrait painting or have chosen to complete these artworks. Along with many traditional techniques, modern portrait painting professionals and consultants now have a range of digital tools at their disposal too.

So what does this mean when it comes to hiring a professional? It means you no longer need to seek out only an artist who lives near you. Today’s portrait painters are able to take a photograph that can be emailed or mailed to them and use it to create a portrait of your choice. And Upwork boasts expansive access to global talent.

The advantage of having such on-demand skill is that you can find someone who paints in the style you desire. Or you can speak to various styles of artist to gain inspiration if you have no clear idea of what you’re looking for. For example, do you want a portrait that exactly replicates the photo you provide? Or would you like a softened, slightly flawless finish? Would you like your portrait in the style of a particular era or painter? All of these variations are possible by discovering the perfect freelancer and the very best rates for the project.
