For the best result, please sent more than one photos. The primary photo is the one you want to be painted, the others are for assistant.

The paper I use are usually high quality 180 gsm Saunders or 300 gsm Fluid water colour paper.
How much time does it take?
For watercolour, it is not an easy task to make a good painting.
the first step is draft, and the second is colouring. These steps are very essential and important. Draft decides the likeness, and the colouring make the feeling. There is no mistakes allow, therefore, it definitely needs time.
How do I decide the size of the painting?
You can imaging how the painting would decorate your room. If this is for family portrait, suggest to go for the larger size, if this is for a gift, you can go for small or medium size that is easy to frame and pack.
