The A3 family portraits are based on high quality headshots of the subjects. You can either build a portrait from multiple photos of each individual, or you can provide a single picture of the family members you want in your drawing. Check out the FAQs on taking the best photograph for your portrait.

A3 family portraits are drawn on white, smooth, Bristol Board paper (250 gsm). The paper is acid free which helps to preserve the drawings for longer. In addition, a fixative spray is used on completed portraits to protect the pencil from accidental smudging. The pencils used are Faber-Castell 9000 graphite pencils.

The Portrait Shop does not provide framing services, but can use the services of a local framer who provides exceptional bespoke framing. If you have any questions, or would like me to source a frame on your behalf, this can happily be discussed further when you order.

*Each A3 family portrait 6 to 8 weeks to complete, but this time may be less or more depending on workload – you will be advised further at the beginning and throughout the process. Of course, if you have a strict deadline in mind, please provide details as soon as you can so this can be accommodated.

Regular updates and progress pictures are shared on The Portrait Shop Facebook and Instagram pages, so give follow along there and you might just see yours being made!
