Portraits in acrylics are painted on either stretched canvas which does not require a frame. If you intend framing your painting, let me know and I will use a shallower canvas or a canvas board.
I use only premium, professional grade acrylic paints which are produced using fine pigments, giving wonderful vibrancy and permanence to the colours. Canvases are premium quality, triple primed, with a depth of 1.4" as standard.
Acrylic paints produce a finish that appears similar to oils, but their fast drying time means that you don't have to wait many weeks for the paint to dry. They are durable and the colours will remain vibrant for many years, as long as they are not hung in direct light. Each painting is coated in a double layer of varnish which provides additional UV protection.
