A fine art renaissance portrait by Vin Weathermon captures a moment. Through collaboration and detailed direction, we create a timeless treasure for you to keep and the moment itself is experiential.
The experience starts with an initial phone interview, followed by a photo session at the historic Orange County studio. After information is gathered on the subject's interests, background and overall history, the session is scheduled. On the day of the scheduled session, the subject arrives with hair and make-up ready and dressed in formal or thematic attire.
After the creation session, we invite you back to view your fine art portraits in full-sized private presentation. Once you select your favorite, our team of artists thoughtfully transform the portrait with painstaking hand-applied brush strokes and oil painted exquisite mastery. Each layer refines the original image to further express the character of the individual or family. Lastly, the portrait is completed with a museum quality gilded frame and customized lighting options.
The grand reveal can be held at the studio and gallery, on location of choice, or at your home with your friends and family in attendance.
Q: What do you create?
A: Luxury portraits that capture the true essence of the subject, in renaissance style and structure. These portraits are large scale to fill walls and the exquisite detail will magnetically draw the eyes to the lasting image.
Q: How do you make them?
A: The initial creation session is where the subject dresses in formal or thematic attire and we capture the initial image. Our team of artists then transform the image into a painting with oil brush detail and finish the piece with museum quality frames, complete with custom engraved nameplates. If the client is local in Orange County, the final piece is revealed, or couriered directly to their residence or business. We can also ship the package anywhere in the world.
Q: Why Renaissance portraiture?
A: The renaissance style is evocative and classic. Renaissance portraits are the perfect way to showcase what makes a family or individual truly unique, as an heirloom or legacy piece of art. The fine art portraits are created to last more than 100 years with proper care.
Q: Why classic realism as the medium?
A: The late Phillip Stewart Charis inspired me, and much of my work has his influence of “chiaroscuro” for dramatic impact.
