Commission a portrait painting and capture Your Essence in a Timeless Masterpiece

To commission a portrait painting is the unique and personal way to immortalise yourself or a loved one. It is a work of art that will be cherished for generations to come.

The creative flow to your eternalisation

To commission a portrait is one of the most meaningful ways to immortalize yourself or a loved one. Enjoy the personalised journey as you commission a portrait with me. The creation of your portrait is a collaborative and deeply personal process, ensuring that your unique spirit and story are authentically captured.

To commence, I, Edwin IJpeij, invest time in understanding you—your essence, narrative, and individuality. We’ll engage in a dialogue to uncover the nuances that make your portrait a true reflection of who you are. Together, we’ll carefully select the ideal pose, lighting, and setting, laying the foundation for a portrait that resonates with your vision.

As we embark on the creative journey, I offer two ways for you to be immortalised: (i) a unique, fully hand-painted portrait accordingly the methods of the Old Masters, and (ii)  a photography technique that stands the test of time: palladium/platinum printing.

Opting for a hand-painted portrait involves a meticulous process. After clearly defining your vision, I’ll craft a sketch for your approval. Once you approve the sketch, I’ll painstakingly paint your portrait using the technique employed by the renowned Renaissance Masters Jan and Hubert Van Eyck, infusing each stroke with utmost care and precision. The result will be a timeless masterpiece, brimming with intricate details and meticulously crafted to preserve your unique beauty for eternity.

Alternatively, if you choose a palladio/platinotype portrait, I’ll utilize the art of photography. Capturing moments that encapsulate your essence, I’ll create negatives on a scale of up to A3 size. These negatives will be carefully contact printed onto handmade, photosensitized paper, up to A3 size. This meticulous process allows for the creation of multiple prints, each possessing its own distinct character. The uniqueness lies in the handmade nature of the photosensitized paper, ensuring that no two prints are identical, in the case you opt for more than one print.

Whichever path you choose, be it the brushstrokes of a hand-painted portrait or the intricate artistry of a palladio/platinotype, my commitment remains unwavering—to deliver a portrait that surpasses your expectations, a timeless piece of art that captures the essence of you.
