Oil Paintings Children, Christian Art and Portrait Paintings

Portrait Artist Celia van Niekerk

Oil paintings hold a special place in my heart. I specialize in Children’s Paintings, Portraits and Inspirational Christian Art. I am however available for other types of commissions too. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any additional info or a quotation.

I do not have a set price list for oil paintings. In order to be able to give you a quotation, I would need to see the photograph that you want me to paint as well as what you are envisioning for your painting.

CHILDREN’S FIGURATE ART COMMISSIONS:

Figurative Art is not traditional portraiture: the child should not be posing, looking and smiling directly into the camera.

You are however welcome to contact me for traditional portraiture too! I absolutely love to paint portraits in oil!

 

A suitable photograph for a painting adheres to the following requirements:

The photograph needs to be a high-quality image.

The photograph needs to have good colour, lighting and composition. (Remember that I can only paint the detail that I am able to see.)

For figurative paintings, I recommend using reference images with a natural feel to them, not posed at all, e.g. a child playing or lost in thought. This is not your typical posed portrait.

INSPIRATIONAL  & DECORATIVE OIL PAINTINGS:

I am available for inspirational Christian and Decorative painting commissions in oil colour too. I do work from a reference photograph. You are most welcome to provide the reference photo, e.g. a closeup of your bridal bouquet. Alternatively, I will be happy to provide you with a few ideas or photographs to choose from once we have discussed your vision for the painting.

Please be advised that I will not copy or imitate another artist’s work. If you supply photographs, the commissioner should be the owner of the photographs as I am legally NOT allowed to work from copyrighted photos.
