As a professional photographer, primarily a family photographer near Ashburn VA, we want to offer you the very best in quality and in options for your family portraits. To that end, we’d like to introduce you to a high quality product we offer, our “Rembrandt Finish” for your framed family portraits.
Rembrandt Finish for Professional Photographer Portraits
We love our clients and feel strongly that their memories should be preserved with the highest quality available today. That’s why we are excited to offer our handmade frames and our newest handmade finish. Our REMBRANDT FINISH for framed canvas portraits mixes photography and painting and is enhanced with oils, painted with the love and talent of a portrait painter, creating depth and dimension. The result is exquisite, amazing and, above all, priceless as it has the realism of a photograph but the beauty, style and feel of a free-hand painting. The painting style is customized to the look and feel of the image.
The Rembrandt Finish is available with our Masterpiece Framing line. It is the marriage between the realism of a photograph and the richness of an old world oil painting. These “old world” artistry methods are used to create an original piece of artwork for each portrait client.
Once your portrait has been printed to the highest standards, it is then turned over to one of our talented artists, who applies lavish layers of oil-based, hand-finished artistry to your portrait. This brings out the subtle details of the portrait. Desirable enhancements are added along the way. The artist carefully awakens each highlight of the portrait, bringing it to its fullest grandeur and beauty, similar to an exquisite oil painting.
Before the Rembrandt Finish is applied, the canvas used for your portrait goes through a multi-step process that is all done by hand in order to ensure the beauty and longevity of your portrait artwork. Below there is a video that shows part of the process for a standard canvas, Artist Finish product.
The Rembrandt finish is a cut above in that it is NOT adhered with glue to canvas — it is actually printed on giclee canvas and then painted with oils. Also, instead of a standard canvas, all Rembrandt finish portraits are on giclee canvas, which is a step above and has a finer texture, resulting in an exquisite finish.
I am so very proud to display a 40×60 Masterpiece Rembrandt in my own home and I give no better testimonial than to say that I enjoy the exquisite craftsmanship of it daily, and proudly share it with friends and family. We have received so many compliments and what they all say is that they have never seen anything like it and they love how unique it is, and that the high quality is clearly seen even by those who have never experienced fine art in it’s highest form.
