I’ve been commissioned to draw and paint many personal portraits over the years and I’d love to create a unique and meaningful piece for you or a loved one. I work from photographs and only take commissions that encourage me to stay true to my unique and evolving style as an artist.
If that sounds good to you, the process is fairly simple… you email me details about what size and type of commission you’d like along with photographs of the person(s) or animal(s) you’d like drawn or painted and I create a beautiful portrait for you!
Please understand that I am very busy so it’s only possible for me to accept a limited number of commissions at a time. View current prices / options below and connect with me through my contact page HERE or at MichaelShapcott@gmail.com to inquire about availability. Thanks.
I begin with a graphite underdrawing on beautiful, high-quality watercolor paper and then let loose, bringing your portrait to life with splashes and washes of bold or bright colors. Painting is very intuitive for me so each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind in it’s completion.
