about Sid Eells work:
"Painting people is my
painting should look like a painting. To me, a painting is a
of art, therefore, I try to overemphasize lights and darks and
sometimes colors to bring the canvas to life. Photos, lets
it, are flat. My challenge is to treat the subject of the
as if it were a live model. Painting from a photo gives me
chance to study the subject at my convenience. Somehow the
character of the individual face or expression will come through
without making it look like a caricature. The painting should
reflect more of the character of the person than the photo.
photos I can also produce a finished product faster.
Caveat Emptor - The technique
from one painting
to another may differ greatly. I am an artist, not a color
To produce your painting I need
the photo to
reproduce and maybe 2-3 others of the same subject. Hair
and eye color is important for black & white
Photos do not have to be large or high-resolution, I can work with
almost anything! Paintings are acrylic on canvas panel or
subject to change
