Silhouettes of children are timeless! They make wonderful gifts for any holiday, birthday, or event.
This order includes ONE (1) individual silhouette painting on stretched canvas. It would look gorgeous framed or unframed. The canvas is painted white in order to give an extra "POP!" to the piece.
These silhouettes are NOT digital images. They are individually drawn and hand-painted. Any subtle variations in color/tone add to the charm of the piece.
To order a silhouette, choose the size of the silhouette and the direction you want the portrait to face. Once you order your portrait, you will need to email me several photos of your child. I will be happy to go over your photos with you and see which one works best.
Here is how to take a photo of your child:
- Hold the camera to the ear level (almost like you're taking a photograph of their ear).
- Take the photo (natural light works best)
- Make sure your photo shows the following: your child's nose, mouth, chin, hair, neck, upper torso
- Longer hair tends to look best when pulled into a ponytail or bun
You may e-mail your photos to me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
All silhouette paintings are black with a white background on stretched canvas. You may choose the following options to customize your silhouette painting:
