Have your portrait painted
Wagtmans uses acrylics to paint commissioned portraits of people, or possibly of animals, on the basis of a photograph. You get to choose the colour and the size of the painting. The price is dependent on the painting's size and level of detail. Wagtmans, can use different materials, if so desired, including various types of (glossy) rhinestones, as well as a thick texture to give the painting a distinctive look.

In collaboration with you, we strive for the best end result.
Roadmap for commissioned portraits
You provide a clear photo or photos of the person(s) you want portrayed. You then send the photo material to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frank will assess the photo material to see if it is sufficient to work with. To get an idea of what Frank means by a clear photograph. To him, a good clear photo is one in which, for example, the eyelashes and eyebrow hairs can be seen when he enlarges the photo. The clearer and sharper the photo, the better the result will be.
Once the photo is approved by Frank, further thought can be given to the size of the painting to be made as well as the style, colors and materials. Once Frank has this information, he can make an offer without any obligation.
If you agree, he will discuss with you the desired delivery time and whether you want to have the painting delivered or pick it up yourself.
Frank will then get to work on the painting and keep you informed of the process via email, WhatsApp or phone. When the painting is finished he will send you a photo of the result. If you would like to see any changes in the portrait they can still be made. If you are completely satisfied then Frank will sign the portrait and apply the final coat of varnish. After the varnish has been applied, changes are no longer possible.
Then an appointment can be made to ship the painting or to be picked up. The preference is always to pick up the painting yourself because it is much safer and can prevent any transport damage. If you want to have the painting delivered anyway, Frank will let you know what the possibilities and delivery costs are. The painting is always packed with plastic bubble wrap and covered with a strong cardboard box. Before the portrait is sent or collected, the full amount (including any shipping costs) must be transferred to the account number indicated or can be paid in cash at the time of collection.
It is also possible for Frank to deliver the painting to your home and hang it on your wall if desired. If you wish, you can discuss the possibilities with Frank.
If you have any questions about the above step-by-step plan, please feel free to contact Wagtmans.
