Artists - Urgent Help - Xmas Prezzie

Hi Guys,

Can anyone recommend a good artist that can paint from a photograph.

It's a picture of my husband racing on his sports bike. I would like it recreated onto canvas.

If you could recommend anyone, I would be grateful.

Thanks in advance

Sarah

If you could make it a belated Xmas present, and you were going to Bangkok, there are artists in the mall on Silom Road who do precisely what you want - or there were. We took a photom of our daughter, selected a frame, left it then went to Koh Samui and collected a framed charcoal portrait on the way back. It was, and still is, beautiful - like our daughter! But that was in 1996.

Hi Sarah, I do hope you find somewhere before Xmas,however if you don't have any luck we had a painting done last October for our daughter (sunset at Kata beach).

We took the photo to P K originals at Kata centre. The artist is opposite the Sawadee Village resort.

The picture measured 1.2x900 & was done in acrylic oils on canvas at a cost of 8000baht.

It took the artist 6 days to paint it & it is proudly hanging in our daughters bedroom. And as a matter of fact we will be revisiting this artist in January to have another work done for us.

We picked up the painting when we were leaving Phuket & he had it aired , rolled & wrapped ready for its trip home on the airline with us.

Every couple of days we were invited back by the artists wife to view the progress of the painting... Great family . CJ

Hi Alan & CJ,

Only in BKK for one night at the beginning and one at the end. Was hoping I could get one done in Chiang Mai or Khao Lak as we arrive into Phuket on the 24th December.

The artist in Kata sounds fab, if I can't get one sorted in Chiang Mai, may well visit that one and give it to him as a Birthday prezzie.

Thanks guys for the advice.

Sarah
