The Photo Session
The first process in Creating an Art Portrait is the Photo Session. Your photo session takes place in your own home, or at the studio in the Hills District of Sydney.
Catherine Vicki captures beautiful and timeless portraits. With an abundance of experience shooting portraits, Catherine has the expertise and creative flair for capturing women at their most beautiful.
The photo session lasts around an hour, using various outfits to capture a variety of looks. At the end of the photo session the images are downloaded and prepared for the Viewing.
Directly after the shoot you have a Viewing of your images. Catherine guides you in choosing the best images for your Art Portraits. You will select the style of Watercolour Flower Painting you would like, including your favourite flowers and colours.
Some people like to choose colours that are either going to compliment or contrast their home decor. Catherine can give you tips on making the most of the colour palette in your home.
Creating Your Art Piece
Once the images, watercolour flower styles and colours have been chosen, the Artistic process begins in the studio. The images are retouched, deep etched and printed in black and white. The watercolour flower painting is artistically conceived around your image. The result is an original artwork that is unique and personal.
The original artwork size is 29.7 x 42 cm (A3). Larger size Prints and Canvas Prints can also be done of the original artwork, for larger wall spaces.
Displaying your Art Portrait
Your Art Portrait will bring soul and personality to your home and will be appreciated for a lifetime. A Large Art Portrait art adds a focal piece that sticks in people’s memories for years to come. It stands out and doesn’t get lost amongst the various furnishings and other décor items. A mix of small and large art pieces works well in a home.
Catherine Vicki can help you select the best locations in your home for your Art Portraits. Professional Framing is available and highly recommended for protecting your art long term.
We recommend black, white or oak wooden frames with simple profiles that complement but don’t distract.
