Commission a Portrait!

Bespoke portraits, based on your photographs, hand-painted by top artists



Oils are an ideal medium for portrait painting because of the rich flesh colours that can be created. With our affordable prices of beautiful oil portraits starting from just £250, it is now really possible and easy to have an incredible portrait created be it of yourself, your family, a loved one or pet.

We could even hand paint a portrait based on a photo you took whilst you were on holiday that was really memorable, or perhaps a photo you took of a loved ones wedding day. Not only is it something special that you can show off proudly in your home, but it would also be a fantastic gift to give.


5 Top Reasons to commission your portrait with us.

  • 1. Quality - Museums, Stately Homes & art connisseurs commission their portraits with us because of the quality of painting and art materials used.
  • 2.  Reliabilty - You can always telephone us, Monday through to Sunday, 9am - 5pm to talk about your portrait on 020 8354 1818
  • 3. Risk Free - If you want your portrait based on multiple photographs, you can use our mock-up service. We will design the portrait first in photoshop using all the images provided. This way there is absolutely no surprises. The artist and you will know exactly what your portrait will look like before you even commission your portrait. (N.B We charge £15 for this service)
  • 4. Honesty - After having a look at your photos that you want your portrait based on, if the artist does not feel that he can paint your portrait to the high standard that we all demand, (usually due to poor quality photos where details can not be seen properly), the artist will always let you know. We will only accept your order if our artists are 100% confident that they can do justice to the photo provided.

  •  5. Framing Service - Fabulous Masterpieces can now offer you a full framing service. All frames are handmade here in the UK and can be made in any colour of your choosing! If you'd like us to frame your portrait , take a look at the brochure and let us know the page number and what style of frame you're after, eg. Swept, City, Reeded etc. We also make gold and silver leaf frames (up to 23.75 ct gold leaf), so if you're looking for a truly luxurious frame please just tell us your requirements.
