Our Signature Painted Portraits

Create a one of a kind work of art with digital watercolor strokes or painted by hand with oils to create a depth to any portrait making it a true masterpiece for your home.

At C41 Portrait Design we have poured our heart and soul into creating a Signature Painted Portrait line that rivals the old master artists. We bring our years of developing film portraits in the dark room to studying with the great artists from all over the world into each of our sessions to create your own priceless piece of portrait art.

Each piece is meticulously crafted by hand using heat bonded archival-pigmented inks that provide an expected print life of over 100 years. Our portrait artists then uses brush strokes to create a stunning Painter Portrait. Lastly, a protective coat is applied to provide life-long protection. The result is a finish that rivals oil paintings and gives a realism of a photo that feels as if it was hand painted.

Each portrait is then hand signed, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. The process to produce such quality by hand takes 8-10 weeks. We also offer a variety of portrait art frames to finish your one of a kind work of art.
